Transgressive Literature/Art Website

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I have considered for a very long time now putting together a website for transgressive literature. It would either be a monthly online magazine, or a community based literary journal-esque site updated constantly. I would like to make it a resource for finding new voices/faces in transgressive literature, art, etc. I would also like to have anti pop culture editorials on a consistent basis. I think it would be a way to open up the genre a bit, and create a community of individuals who enjoy that niche of art.

Where I am stuck right now is the fact that I have no experience in building a website, but given the right tools, I think I could manage. I am going to have to find someone eventually who will be able to maintain a site for me and offer more sophisticated materials as I go forward.

I am also going to need people who would be willing to write and possibly edit in the future. I know it will take a lot of work and time to gain some momentum, but once there is a following, I would also like to take submissions for short stories, etc.

I am just having a hard time getting this idea off the ground. I am currently the only one involved in the thought process, and I thought because Chuck is such an important part of the genre and many of you seem to like transgressive art, maybe you would have some suggestions for me.

I am also considering the idea that it might have to just start out as a community (message board, etc.) for a while until it evolves into something else.

Any thoughts would be extremely helpful and welcome.
Thank You!
