    A Worldbuilding Magazine

    This article is by Adam Bassett.

    [​IMG]I’ve been writing stories since about the age of ten. It began with unfinished fan-fiction novels and has developed into original stories with (hopefully) intriguing settings and characters. During my time working on these projects there has always been a collaborative drive whenever I spoke with another who enjoyed telling a story. I believe it is out of this spirit that Worldbuilding Monthly was born.

    I learned of the digital magazine about a week before the first issue was released - this was late in March 2017 - and I immediately fell in love with it. Worldbuilding Monthly is a platform for the greater community of worldbuilders to share their ideas, a place for artists to develop and share their work. It is a place for discussion, encouragement of crazy ideas, and perhaps most importantly it is a centralized platform for sharing quality edited content to help worldbuilders in their endeavors.

    A Collaborative Process

    The magazine’s team changes for every issue; it is an international team of volunteers, each of whom in some way hopes to help share and teach through the magazine. Postantera is our greatest manifestation of this. The team who has collaborated in this world have shared a few things about it in nearly every issue, as well as a short story to accompany the more technical articles. Since issue one,...

    Glad you enjoyed the magazine! We're currently working on the next issue so keep an eye out for that in early December. Until then, we have a growing library of content on the website linked in the blog post above.

    I read through the first issue, and am very impressed by the quality of the publication. I'm telling all Mythic Scribes readers to check it out. It's first rate stuff.

    Thank you! Issue 1 was a great start but we've evolved over the months and continue to try to improve our presentation and content. It's rather variable, due to the size of the team and volunteer nature of the project, but I think we've done well.

    Thanks again for cooperating with us on this, and for letting us communicate so freely with Mythic Scribes. It's been a joy.
