The Voice of Flores is only weeks away from going to print! By now, you would have seen our posts about our exciting new magazine, coming out soon. We are so proud to be bringing you a magazine all about Flores and the fabulous people who call it home, in all its glossy, technicolour glory.
The Voice of Flores was actually our working title while we were creating the concept, but as the idea grew, we realised the name was a perfect fit for the publication. The website and magazine speaks with the collective voice of Flores, telling the stories of all its people whether local, expat, tourist or future visitor.
We are calling out to all writers who would like to collaborate with us and have their story about life in Flores featured in The Voice of Flores.
Have you lived in Flores all your life? We want to hear about how life has changed as Flores has grown, and the amazing experience of growing up in beautiful Flores.
A new adventure? We want to hear about the experience of falling in love with Flores and making the sea change to start a new life here.
We want to meet new people, visit villages, work with charities in Flores, and create a community based website and magazine that everyone can contribute to and feel a part of.
It’s hard to take a bad photo in Flores, with the spectacular natural environment offering incredible photographic opportunities. In fact the photos we share on our social media all come from visitors to Flores who have been able to capture some truly magical moments. Keep sending in your photos, we want to see Flores from your perspective, whether you are a first time visitor, or have lived in Flores for years.
Our collection of photos forms a visual diary of Flores, charting the development and impact of tourism and expansion of infrastructure on life in Flores. It’s a vital way of preserving the past in print, as more people fall in love with the clear water, spectacular rocky outcrops and remote jungle villages of Flores.
As we finalise layout and our first edition, we would also like to offer great value advertising to anyone in Flores who has a business, charity, club or event they would like to promote. Ads can be two-page editorial style, the entire back page just for your business, or a quarter-page ad. And don’t worry if graphic design is simply not your thing, we have a fabulous graphic designer who is at your service and happy to create the most sensational ad to show off your business.
The magazine will be in all major hotels, resorts and tourist accommodation in Flores, plus with tour companies, certain restaurants in Flores and also businesses in Bali that have a connection to Flores.
