About

MISSION
THINGS (Magazine) is a media platform focused on youth and the arts. We are here for the makers and consumers of art. We believe that the future of art and politics lies in our hands. We operate in Boston and are dedicated to creating spaces within the city for youth in the arts. We are proud to be from Boston and we celebrate the city as a home for the arts. We control the media by being the media; we create the images that need to be seen, the sounds that need to be heard, and the stories that need to be told. We strongly believe in DIY ethics; anyone can create. We exist to serve our community. We hope to create unity through the arts.

ABOUT
Things Magazine was born out of being cast in the shadows of large creative hubs like New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco (the entire state of CA, really). Boston has always been recognized as a educational city, recognized for its great colleges and middle-aged working class more than its creative youth. The Things Magazine team recognized that Boston artists existed, but were spread out and suffocated by desires to flee to larger cities with better creative opportunities. We started the magazine to become the creative opportunity for artists, especially teenage artists, in the city looking to share their work with a larger community. We started the magazine, for teens who wanted to be apart of a creative scene in Boston, but couldn't find one. Boston teens interested in art no longer have to despise the city and day-dream about what it would be like to live in a bigger artistic hub - they can find artistic outlets here in Boston, in Things Magazine.

Savannah Bradley Staff Writer
Legend has it that on certain thunderous nights, you can find seventeen-year-old writer/actor/general wordsmith Savannah patrolling the aisles of your local record store. Secretly, she likes to think that the character of Margot Tenenbaum was actually based on her. Aside from that, she loves Tori Amos, art history, and long night-time train rides through the city. Her first short film is coming out mid-2017, and you can catch her melodramatic poetry occasionally pop up over at Rookie Magazine
