Publishers Added - Daastan

Publishers Added - Daastan

A Story by Zahra

Daastan is a self-publishing platform dedicated to empower writers globally.

I noticed that WC allows us to add publishers in its Publishers category, so I thought I'd add these publishers and let you guys know about them. Also, I feel I'm responsible to add a little note that Daastan, the publishing company in question, is not in VT. WC has a limited drop down list of regions, so I had to pick one as it was mandatory.

So what is Daastan?

It started in Pakistan as a self-publishing startup, aiming to provide a platform for aspiring writers who were having trouble getting published with traditional publishers. Soon, many writers joined this platform. After Daastan's short story competition "The Stories Untold", many Indian writers were also on board, so now Daastan's also operating in India. In a recent season of "The Stories Untold" there were some international authors as well. So, Daastan welcomes people from all over the world. Qissa is Pakistan's first digital self-publishing platform (, where writers can make their accounts for free and self-publish their books. Print on demand copies can be sold this way. Daastan also runs crowdfunding campaigns for writers.

For more details, go to Daastan's WC page by clicking here.
I'll probably be taking down this post if it's against WC's policies, but hope someone out there finds this information useful.
