Hello Adventure Worlds Readers,
Happy New Year from Christian and myself. 2015 marks AW’s third year and we have a big one planned so far. 2014 was amazing for us. We managed to post a story every Monday through September, created and distributed our first local Zine, and even managed to try a few experiments with The Fifth Monday and our Halloween stories. Our readership grew nearly exponentially and we received a ton of submissions.
We are proud of what we were able to accomplish, but we have so much more in store. We’ve had to make some hard decisions, but because of them we have been able to adapt and grow quickly. The first example of this is the new layout of the site. More changes are soon to come as further developments progress behind the scenes.
Due to the incredible amount and quality of the submissions we’ve received, February is going to be our first Submissions Only Month. If the fantastic stories continue to fill our inbox, we look forward to more this year.
We are also looking to start a new Fifth Monday in March and have Zines scheduled quarterly through out the year. If we’re lucky, we’ll have more Finders and even a new Comic or two.
We need your help though. We need readers, writers, and champions to spread the word. We do our best to provide quality, entertaining stories, and a growing community, all for free. All we want is to reach the people who want to read our stories. So tell your friends, sign up to our facebook group, and follow us on twitter. If Ello is your thing, you can find us there too. If there is something you think we missed, let us know. We want to connect with you in as many ways as possible. If you have a story you’d like to share on Adventure Worlds, submit it.
Thanks for hanging out with us last year and we look forward to seeing you every week,
Ben Van Dongen
