Producing great art and a great novel or book is an extreme accomplishment in itself. It can take months or even years to do and is extremely difficult. But, what is even more difficult is getting your work out there. Promoting is a very time consuming and expensive task. Our goal is to help as many artists and novelists get proper marketing and advertising for their finished work.
We are in the process of completing our website that will allow local artists and novelists post their items for free. But, this is only one avenue of the marketing process. Local targeted email campains, ads in the local newspaper, a publicity agent, and their own websites are needed to further their progress.
What We Need
What we are looking to do is raise funds to help in these processes. Once funds are raised, we will contact local artists and novelists and disperse the funds and give our help to those who qualify.
You Will Receive
In return for your contribution, you will get a special "Thank You" in the Steamboat Today newspaper. When we create an ad that funding is available for local artists and novelists, we will include your name or business name in the "Special Thanks To Contributors" section of the ad.
Think of the difference you can make in the lives of those artists and novelists. Your donation could help produce the next Picasso or J. K. Rowling that is from Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
