Wyrd Daze competition and update

 

Time for another Wyrd Daze update, including news of a competition!

I’m pleased to say that the zine is going strong: I’m currently putting together issue 5, and as I type there are 25 subscribers. Having 25 people happy to invest a little money every month is quite an achievement for an independent endeavour, and I am very proud of how the zine is progressing. The quality of contributions continues to be excellent, and I am extremely grateful to all those who have given their time and shared some of their magnificent creativity. With 25 subscribers, I am able to pay regular contributors a little for their work.

 

The next goal is to keep spreading the word and reach 50 subscribers, whereupon I will be able to pay more people more money for their contributions. I firmly believe that artists deserve to get paid for their work as much as anyone does, and that a subscription based model such, as with Wyrd Daze, is a good viable way to facilitate such payment: directly, without intervention disrupting the creativity, and without intrusion from advertising or other commercial limitations.

 

So, what you can do to help is spread the word, create something, contribute, perhaps write a review of the zine or a specific part of it, and most of all consider subscribing, to help support independent creativity. It’s not a chore, it’s a gift: for only $5, which is less than £3, you get a dazzling amount to content every month!

 

You can subscribe HERE 

 

Alternatively, there’s a button to subscribe directly via Paypal HERE

 

You can also buy back issues HERE

 

Every little share, good word, contribution, review, and subscription really helps. Thank you so much to all those that do!

 

On to the competition! Watch the short video below…

 

So, all you have to do is guess when all the snow will be gone, and the person who guesses the closest will win a 5 month subscription to Wyrd Daze. Email your guess to wyrd.daze@gmail.com.

 

Current subscribers can enter too, and can win a special prize, the detail of which I’m keeping under wraps for a little longer.

Thank you very much for your time,

I wish you the wyrdest of dreams…
