Hello there you crazy beautiful things – thank you for taking a few moments to read this blog post!
I have so much I want to say, but I’m aware of how precious time is, so I’ll do my best to keep this brief.
I want to tell you about this really cool thing called Wyrd Daze: it’s a multimedia zine that features stories, music, interviews, articles, art, poetry, photography, and video.
I’m giving away issue 6 for free, because I want to show you what you’re missing. You can view and download it HERE
Wyrd Daze is usually available via a subscription of 5 Canadian dollars a month, which as I type is £2.73.
This money creates a revenue with which to pay people for their original contributions to the zine.
There is also now an option to have access to Wyrd Daze content for as little as $1 a month via the ongoing crowd funding site Patreon – more details below.
If you enjoy what you experience, and feel that supporting independent creativity is a good idea, I’d really like you to consider subscribing.
(Click HERE to subscribe via Patreon –
other options are detailed below)
Subscribing to Wyrd Daze directly supports independent creativity, both financially and by getting people’s work seen. You don’t have to take my word for it that there is some real talent being showcased within Wyrd Daze, you can check out the above link and see for yourself.
Wyrd Daze is always open to submissions of any kind of creativity.
We do favour genre writing, and what might be considered non-mainstream music, but we are by no means restricted by that, or anything. The purpose of Wyrd Daze is to act as a showcase for independent and extraordinary creativity.
For submissions or other inquiries,
contact Leigh at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ve been saying “we”, but Wyrd Daze is currently put together by just one person: me. It’s a labour of love, and as a writer and musician I get to showcase my own creativity too!
There are currently 28 subscribers, which is great, but I’d really like to keep this growing so that the contributors have a wider audience and the amount that I can pay them increases.
The internet is a wonderful thing: it allows people to create, distribute, and promote their creativity worldwide with relative ease. With the recent innovations in crowd funding platforms, as well as creative market places such as Bandcamp and Etsy, it has never been easier for people to express themselves freely without the need for corporate intervention and funding.
But getting individual voices heard within a vast crowd can be tricky, which is why Wyrd Daze is such a precious thing: a platform for a community of creators to have their collective voices sing loud and be noticed.
Wyrd Daze deserves more support and it needs your help: with spreading the word, but most importantly with subscriptions.
I don’t have to tell you how little $5 / £2.73 is, but if the number of subscribers rose from 28 to 100 it would mean a lot, as the contributors would then be getting a very decent amount of attention, encouragement, and funding. Every new subscriber takes us one step closer to that goal, and is very much appreciated.
Creativity is the spice of life, perhaps our greatest evolutionary achievement as a species, and should be celebrated and supported whenever possible.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this far.

And as a special thank you for reading this far I’d like to offer you a free look at the new Wyrd Daze Clubs that I introduced with the expansion onto Patreon. A team of dedicated and talented creators brings you fresh and exclusive content every month!
