TAPAS LAUNCHES TAPASTRY – THE TAPAS CREATOR COMMUNITY
Los Angeles, CA (January 12, 2021) – Leading digital publishing platform of webcomics and novels, Tapas, have named the community side of the platform ‘Tapastry’ providing a destination for all creators to share their stories and find their audience. The Tapas creator community contributed to the naming pool and ultimately ‘Tapastry,’ submitted by Tapas creators Sera Swati and Miqin, was selected by members of our community with the mission, ‘Just like countless individual unique threads being woven together to form one detailed picture, also called a tapestry, the Tapas creators have created a community that is unique in the publishing landscape.’ The Tapastry mascot, Pupper (above), was also created by Bilvy, creator of multiple series on Tapas.

Tapas’ community creators have already seen great success thanks to this supportive model including series now part of Studio Tapas Originals, Magical Boy which has been optioned for television and just announced book deal with Scholastic, top comic and novel The Beginning After The End – which has been translated into six languages so far and topped the sales charts of webcomic publishers across the globe, The Witch’s Throne, Whispers of the True King, and Tapas Exclusive Lost and Found – all of which began on the community side of the platform. Tapastry will continue to be the Tapas community for creators to develop their stories. Tapastry will also provide community creators with opportunities for editorial support, marketing, and revenue.
