All About Bravery Magazine
What age is the magazine created for?
We have designed Bravery with girls and boys ages 5-12 in mind, but there’s something for every age in Bravery. We’ve heard our customers say that older and younger kids enjoy Bravery too, and we have a parent section for adults. Basically, Bravery is for everyone! Interested?

Is Bravery just for girls?
Nope! We specifically designed Bravery Mag with girls AND boys in mind. We feel like it is important for all kids to learn from the lives and experiences of real, brave women.
Why doesn’t Bravery feature men too?
We believe that men and women together can accomplish great things, but what inspired us to start Bravery was the lack of strong female role models and their stories in mainstream society. We want Bravery Magazine to be the place to share the stories of real, brave women.
What will I find inside the magazine?
Bravery Magazine is full of illustrated stories, fun DIYs, and educational activities that all teach about the featured woman and the many facets of her life. There’s even a parent section with essays, reflection questions, and a little bit of humor. We handpick artists to create original art and content for us so that each issue of Bravery is unique, beautiful, and empowering. To see a flip through of our first issue, click here.
Why is it so expensive?
Bravery Magazine is different from the traditional magazine. Instead of thin, slick paper, it’s made with 70lb weight paper and a cover that has a laminate soft touch finish. This finish helps the magazine last longer. We don’t intend for Bravery to be thrown away, but instead be loved and collected. We also commission original custom art for each issue. We love supporting small artists and it’s something that is very important to us. That being said, we do want to make sure Bravery can be available to everyone, so we are continually working on ways to make it affordable to all.
Why is this only a print magazine? Will you ever have a digital version?
In a very digital age, we felt that it was important that we give our children something tangible–something they could hold and read, feel, and touch. We love that our magazine will give them something to do that doesn’t involve a screen. As for a digital version, we love the idea for school and education purposes and are considering options along those lines for future Bravery.
