Writers help in Publishers struggle

$355 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 12 people in 30 months

Our names are Jared Quan and James Thompson, and we have a dream...

There is a publisher called BigWorldNetwork that has done some amazing work, and contributed rich material through a serial format. The serial format has been around since the 17th century and was used to produce the works of authors like Charles Dickens, Alexander Dumas, Leo Tolstoy, Herman Melville, and Harriet Beecher Stowe to name a few.

Unfortunately, this company is in the process of shutting down. 

It is our goal to take this company and transform it into a non-profit entity. Turning BigWorldNetwork into a non-profit company would give it the ability to continue its mission of finding amazing talent and publishing their works.  

We are joined by some truly remarkable people on this new project. Several of us are donating time and resources to make this transition. However, it is not enough. There are expenses that are outside of our expertise and ability to reach. Items like Legal, Licensing, Accounting, and Server fees.

These expenses all come to $10,000.00. With this campaign, we would like to raise half.

This campaign will be open to all donations for 60 days.

We need your help to fund the transition of this amazing indie publisher into a non-profit company. As a non-profit, BigWorldNetwork would be committed to discovering outstanding new writing from all over the world and presenting it in ways that celebrate its worth and extend its reach. We would help cultivate and develop authors to present their best work to the world. 

So many people have dreams like these but don’t know where to turn to for help, and we want to be the source. It is our dream to help others achieve their dreams of getting published. Please help us reach our modest goal to help cover these expenses.

Jared has donated thousands of hours to various non-profit organizations. Currently he serves as the President Elect of the League of Utah Writers (an 80-year-old organization), Chair of the West Jordan Arts Council (West Jordan is the third largest city in Utah), and the Recruiting Chair for the Utah Chapter of the Association of IT Professionals. Jared has also had the opportunity to be on several Panels at the Salt Lake Comic Con.

James donates his time facilitating a writing group for Art Access and the League of Utah Writers. James has also had the opportunity to be on several panels at the Salt Lake Comic Con.  

We have been so fortunate to have had the opportunity to help so many amazing people, and look forward to helping even more in the future. We appreciate your help and consideration.

Thank You,

 Jared Quan and James Thompson

In two days we've raised $255.00. However, we've discovered something more than that. We've seen that we have a lot of friends that are willing to support us. It means a lot to both Jared and myself.

If you have not shared this campaign with others, (and a lot of you have), now's the time to do it.

As I said, we have a great many friends, and you are helping us to realize not only our dream, but the dreams of many others.

Thank you all, very much.

I have confidence that Jared is putting together something very special here. It will be a benefit to all if we can make it come to fruition.
