SEATTLE, Feb. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The team behind the popular The Hero’s Journal today announced that its newest offering, The Hero’s Journal: Istoria Magic Academy, is now live on Kickstarter, where they reached 100% of their funding goal in under 9 minutes.
The Hero’s Journal launched in 2019 via a successful Kickstarter campaign. Over the past two years, a vibrant community of journalers has formed organically on social media to share stories and seek advice.
“Thanks to our first Kickstarter, The Hero’s Journal quickly transformed from a simple idea to a community of 25,000 journalers,” said Nick Vitellaro, the 27-year-old co-founder.
He added: “During the past year, we learned a lot about what our fans like about the Journal and how it helps them achieve their goals. Today, we’re excited to go back to Kickstarter, where it all started, to release a new edition that incorporates feedback and suggestions from our amazing community.”
During 2020, the team witnessed firsthand how the Journal is helping people cope during the pandemic. For example, one community member commented: “I’ve been feeling pretty scatterbrained since quarantine started, but this journal has really helped create more structure in my daily life, in the most fun and thoughtful way.”
The Hero’s Journal: Istoria Magic Academy is based on a story about magic. The process of learning something new, working through failure, and discovering the ordinary magic of changing the world around you through words and actions.
“We expect that the new edition will resonate with our current community as well as with a new group of journalers who are looking to embark on a new adventure during a uniquely challenging time,” said Nick.
About The Hero’s Journal
Stories are the oldest form of human communication. From the earliest books ever written to the latest box office hit, humans are hardwired to communicate in the form of narrative. And there is no narrative more important to the core of each of us than the story we tell about ourselves. We set out to create a journal that would combine the power of self-narrative with the psychology of goal setting. The result? The Hero’s Journal—now used by thousands of heroes around the world. From brainstorming the journal in 2018 to launching a kickstarter in 2019 to quitting our full-time jobs in the beginning of 2020, we’ve been blown away by the support of a community that keeps selling out every single one of our production runs.
