Mythoversal publishes poems inspired by world mythologies, providing additional context through informative articles and sources.
Standalone poems can be found in the Short Takes
The Mythoverse is an original and sometimes off-kilter universe of world mythologies. Within the Mythoverse is Mythoversal Hellas, a land inspired by Greek and Roman tales set in the Bronze Age Mycenaean culture.
The Mythoverse can support original student works that combine traditional chracters and setting in new and creative ways. Mythoversal's Resident Author, Greg R. Fishbone
, is available for creative consultation and writing instruction.
Author in Residence Greg R. Fishbone
is retelling stories of Greek mythology in serialized verse stories set in the realm of Mythoversal Hellas.
Tales from the Epic Mythoverse
For nine years, Agamemnon's army has besieged Priam's Troy. But as events in the Iliad wind down, a single javelin, blown off its mark, hurls Penthesileia and her Amazon companions against the balance of powers, into the Trojan War, and into Epic history.
Tales from the Mythoversal Theogony
Mythoversal Pandora is too dangerous for mortal eyes, and has been hidden by the gods within a jar, within a box, within another box, within a shipping crate, within a website. The story can be opened, verse by verse, only by community members working together (or by a clever few puzzle-solvers working on their own).
Tales from Mythoversal Thebes
In a time of miasma, a new hero will rise, running toward certain death!
Some poems contain links to brief notes about the mythological subject matter referenced. These notes aren't meant to survey all aspects of mythology, but to help readers understand specific mythological references and cultural elements of the story. For poems in the Mythoverse, the notes may include differences between current usage and the traditional sources.
Teachers, librarians, and school administrators may sign up for the Educator Subscriber Group
to gain access to content to aid in their instruction of mythology.
Within some of the detailed notes are call-out boxes containing non-fiction notes connecting the world of mythology with actual history.
Although this site is designed to be an accessible resource for users of all ages, some mythology deals with mature subject matter that may be inappropriate to sensitive readers. Mature content and external links are only visible to logged-in World Anvil members who self-assign the "Mature" subscriber group, affirming that they are 13+ years old and, if under 18, are accessing the site with a guardian's permission.
Some content is hidden by default behind spoiler buttons. These can be used as a slow reveal of information, to prevent surprise story elements from being revealed too early, to clean up formatting, or to present warnings for potentially triggering content.
The following spoiler contains a secret that King Midas's barber whispered into a hole in the ground, intending for it to remain unheard.
Clicking on an open spoiler button will hide the spoiler again.
We want Mythoversal to be a safe site for all users. Where necessary, especially within areas of mature content, trigger-warnings will indicate material that may revisit traumas upon certain members of the community.
The following warning is used to prevent community members from accidentally reliving the experience of watching the 2019 theatrical flop, Cats: The Musical
