Interesting idea, but the way to get money for it has alredy been tried years ago... and failed.
Having your writers work as well as pay to do work never works out well which is why magazines make money by advertising and partially from subscriptions (from readers).
At the moment I am looking to get a job for the summer and although I would like to write articles for a magazine, I do not have the money to spend to work on that at the moment.
I would suggest that you look for people who will pay to advertise their business to get the funding or through a small subscription fee to the reader.
