Newgrounds brings together artists from all walks of life. Graphic artists, musicians, programmers, and writers. Just look at a few of your favorite animations and games on Newgrounds and it's plain to see that an increasing majority of the best work on here is the result of collaboration.
Newgrounds has already provided a great environment for collaboration to thrive, but we as a community need to support its growth and expand its influence through supporting the different skillsets that are integral to its success.
One avenue of opportunity for you to join this undertaking is to come support The Newgrounds Writing Anthology, a collection of short stories and poetry designed to exhibit the potential to create storytelling magic through Newgrounds collaboration.
There are fifteen days left in our Kickstarter Campaign and we are $1,300 away from our goal of getting this anthology a fully-fledged publication package that will spread the word of Newgrounds and its writers beyond the web and onto the printed page. If 65 people pledge for the $20 reward, we will make this goal. I am confident that this is attainable, and if we can get that amount for this project, which began so humbly on the Newgrounds Writing Forum, it will take on a life of its own, and bring unprecedented awareness to all the awesome stuff happening here on Newgrounds.
I'm also pleased to announce that WE WILL HAVE SUPPORT FOR IPAD THROUGH THE NEWGROUNDS STORE. There was some question about that earlier, but now it's completely taken care.
Please consider donating if you are convinced of the cause or just want to see Newgrounds succeed or just want to have something good to read for the end of the summer. And a HUGE thank you to all who have already joined in our mission and continue to support us by mentioning us around the site. Your involvement has really moved me. Thanks.
Happy Reading and Happy 4th of July!
