In the same way that the “Elixir of Life” is meant to increase your time on this planet “The Elixir Magazine” adds years to yours, not in number but in knowledge.
Who are we?
The Elixir Magazine is a new online magazine that launched on January 1st, 2019. We are based in Sana’a, Yemen, but have managed to create an international team of 10 members via twitter. We started in the form of a WordPress blog, but will soon create our own official website.
The Elixir team works to produce and collect material that we hope will live up to the international standards. Our target audience is young adults. Our aim is to become an international magazine available both on paper and the internet.
Why are we here?
The Elixir aims to encourage reading, leave a print and also show the world that Yemen is a lot more than Qat, Weaponry and Terrorism (the way it is generally viewed in Media).
During a time where technology has completely taken over, our magazine tries to fight its way through social networks. We try to remind our audience that reading can be both entertaining and beneficial. Also, The Elixir acts as a platform for aspiring poets, short-story tellers, journalists and prose writers.
We also want to prove to the whole WORLD, that we can still succeed despite the war. We work to provide living examples of Success Stories and Thriving Businesses that have recently emerged and defied all the obstacles a war is likely to cause.
Where are we heading?
Once we have built a strong firm online, The Elixir will be taken to its second level, putting it on paper. We plan to enlarge the team by hiring more designers, photographers, editors and freelance writers. We then plan to open our first headquarters in the capital city, Sana’a.
Criticism helps us grow so do not hesitate to share your opinion.
