Writers deserve more creative freedom, wealth and abundance from their art. The current publishing, writing and film-making industries are very top down. This idea came from my own personal life. As an avid reader, poet and fiction writer working on my first novel around my immigrant experience coming to the United States, I’ve always felt I didn’t have a creative community that i could share and bounce my ideas with nor did I have proper connections to understand the writing field, nor make my writing much more of a reality while building my skills and growing my reader audience that could then afford me my dream of having a critical voice in our society and culture today in spite of everything that is occurring in the U.S.
Having experienced different problems over the years such as writers block, not having enough time to create, not being held accountable to somebody else nor having a reliable editor, I first and foremost wanted to explore ways in which people’s creativity could thrive as well as get connect them with the right people to get their stuff out there.
Every single person that has gone through this process has expressed immense joy of collaboratively creating with others. Before we got started, Bshara and I market tested by contacting writers and freelancers through Survey Monkey, then conducted many phone and in-person interviews. It was then and there we discovered a vast array of the problems/pain points similarly to what I had experience extended to much more people not just writers but many creative entrepreneurs. Many people right now need this.
We are starting with connecting writers to readers.
