We’ve got a lot happening with NaNoWriMo coming up, so read on to find out what’s happening at Worldsmyths!
Indiegogo Campaign Update
Our Indiegogo campaign for raising funds to publishing Seasons Unceasing has finished, and we have raised $710CAD on our goal of $2500. While it is disappointing that we didn’t hit our goal, we are looking forward to publishing this anthology anyway! This is our strongest anthology yet, and we know you will love it.
Missed the chance to back the campaign? Don’t worry, you can still preorder copies of the anthology! We will be launching a Backerkit campaign, which is an addon for Indiegogo that allows us to launch a presale store! Watch this space for more news.
Want to help? Follow us on social media and share our posts! Every share helps, and you’d be supporting an indie woman-run business.
It is the 1st anniversary of Myths, Legends, and Dreams, and to celebrate we are discounting the anthology by 25%!
Want to get it even cheaper? On October 9th the anthology will be on sale for 99 cents! Discover your new favourite author today!

NaNoWriMo Events and Prizes
National Novel Writing Month is an international event that takes place during the month of November, where writers aim to write 50k words in a single month.
Many of our Discord members participate, so to help get those words flowing, we will be hosting a word crawl this year! A word crawl is a self guided challenge involving rolling dice and beating prompts by writing words.
For further motivation we will be giving out a copy each of our anthologies. Participate in NaNoWriMo to get one entry into then draw, and complete your NaNoWriMo target to get a second entry! Prizes to be sent out early December.
