Writer’s Bloq is taking on an enormous problem. Only .03% of manuscripts submitted to publishers are published, and the average self-published book sells under 20 copies. At the end of the day, it’s the same story; it is extremely difficult for writers to get discovered and publish successfully without the substantial backing of money, celebrity status, or luck.
Writer’s Bloq is created for writers, by writers who have experienced this problem first hand. We want to meet and discover the greatest writers of our generation. But we can’t do it without your help.
If our Kickstarter is successful, we will deliver Writer’s Bloq directly to you in Kerouac fashion. Our writers have agreed to sacrifice their day jobs to go on the road and host Bloqparties — to share their stories, to toast the art and pursuit of writing, to reveal their passion — for you, with you.
So, to solve a big problem, we’ve created big rewards.
The Writer’s Bloq Quarterly is a collection of writing by the top writers on the Bloq as decided by the registered community. The Quarterly will include short stories, poetry, essays, and short shorts, all the pieces composed by talented writers with unique, undiscovered voices.
As a special treat, Writer’s Bloq commissioned some of the most talented artists to create incredible art based on each piece of writing. The artwork comes from different mediums and encompasses various subjects in order to offer our readers a never-before-seen collection of coupled art and writing!
I did. Or, rather, my alter-ego O. M. Grey did.
