I know May is a while away yet, but GUYS. We have some special announcements that have us already excited at Wyrd & Wonder HQ. Keep reading for the first of our info drops for this year’s event…
First of all, if anyone is wondering “what’s Wyrd & Wonder?” – welcome! Wyrd & Wonder is an annual online celebration of all things fantasy, where a party of avid readers/bloggers come together to share enthusiasm for the genre. It can and does cover a rainbow of subgenres, mediums, art forms etc. – books, movies, TV shows, art, comics and graphic novels, even music! And it’s not limited to blogging either – we have a strong Twitter following, with livetweets and chats to entertain us, and we’re open to other social media such as Instagram, TikTok, Litsy etc.
The event runs throughout the month of May, with co-hosts imyril, Jorie and myself keeping everyone up to speed on party content with weekly round-ups. If this sounds like a good time and you want in, our 2022 sign-up is officially open – and if you’re familiar with this process, don’t worry; we will have giveaways to entice you as per usual! We’ll have more information on those a bit later on.
Speaking of our hosts, however – this year we’re shaking things up as part of Wyrd & Wonder’s fifth birthday with two new co-hosts! We’re absolutely delighted to have veteran Wyrd & Wonder participants Annemieke of A Dance With Books and Ariana of The Quaint Book Nook coming on board to help us organise the event this year.
Yes, that’s right – I said fifth birthday! Wyrd & Wonder is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, and it tickles me that we’re marking the occasion by bringing the number of co-hosts up to five.
Speaking of the significance of five – because anniversary tradition says that wood symbolises the fifth, we’re going for a forest fantasy theme this year! My annual read along is yet to be properly announced, which I’ll do in our next proper update, but there will be a forest fantasy-themed book to enjoy this year! I’m currently investigating options and not to tease too hard, but there might already be a standout contender…
I said sign-up was open, and I meant it! You can click through to our sign-up form to get in early, though it’ll remain open right up until May 1st so you absolutely don’t have to rush. You can also grab a banner and help us make some noise – just remember to please credit the artist!
I think that’s it for the moment, but we’ll be back in April with more plans! Stay tuned, adventurers…
