Word Wizards Press, the creator of Wizard Alchemy, a monthly poetry gazette featuring new poets, columns, discussions, opinions, word alchemy and an encompassing members forum, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise production funds for the publication. The company launched the new poetry publication to help authors who are having difficulty publishing.
According to Word Wizards Press, “In the current publishing environment, it is extremely difficult for new writers to get published, distributed and marketed. This holds true even more for those who write poetry. There are many talented poets who have no opportunity to have their unique voices heard. Word Wizards Press is going to address this issue with a multi-pronged approach.”
Wizard Alchemy will offer poets monthly incentives through poetry contests with substantial cash prizes as well as publication. All monthly and yearly contest winners will be featured in an annual anthology entitled Silent Voices Heard. This publication is the topic of a separate Kickstarter campaign.
Furthermore, Wizard Alchemy will offer a unique level of support and interaction with other poets through columns and forums in each issue. According to the company, “We at Word Wizards Press want our Members to know one another as people, not just poets capable of writing great works. We believe there are very talented poets around the world who have not had the opportunity to present their creations, or get published. We refer to these poets as ‘Silent Voices.'”
As seen at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/460700033/wizard-alchemy-poetry-gazette-from-word-wizards-pr, the Kickstarter campaign will offer pledge levels from $20 to $2,450, with rewards including copies of Wizard Alchemy, t-shirts and cover art books.
