Hi all, Geri here! Some All Worlds Wayfarer news! You may have noticed we’ve been a little quiet of late.
Trigger warning: Assault
A month ago my partner and I were out walking in our neighborhood when a man assaulted us and tried to abduct them. I was able to chase him off but in the process shattered my shoulder.
I am currently unable to use my dominant arm and will likely be out of work for 3-4 months. I am the primary funding behind All Worlds Wayfarer and now find myself with extremely limited funds for the foreseeable future. (Rowan also has limited funds due to disability.)
We still very much want to break the AWW hiatus! Because of this, we will be opening a very short submission call on July 20th for 2 weeks only. We will be accepting 10 stories for one issue to get us up and running again. We’re hoping to hear from all of you! I’m bored, please send me stories to read!
We also could very much use your support to help us get the AWW momentum rolling again so that we can return to our usual schedule. We love AWW and its community of authors and readers and want to keep it going for years to come.
If you have the means to support AWW, we now have our own online bookshop where you can purchase physical copies of the AWW Anthologies Through Other Eyes and Prismatic Dreams. Both are available in hardcover and paperback. Also available in ebook are back issues of the AWW magazine and both anthologies. Purchasing directly from our shop gives us more income than buying from Amazon, B&N, or another bookseller.
In addition to copies of the magazine and our anthology, we also have a merchandise shop! Stickers, mugs, bags, hats, t-shirts, and more!
If you don’t have the means to support financially, word of mouth also helps us so much. You can leave reviews on Goodreads or Amazon, or simply share the magazine on social media. We love our readers and authors so much, we are looking forward to traveling to new worlds with you once more!
