Invitations Are in the Mail!

you-are-invited

Dear Creative Change Agent,

Thank you for being an instrument of change, story, and humanity.

I would like to invite you to join Wisegoddess.com as a regular content provider.  Wisegoddess.com was built to be a village, a community for artists, developers, builders, and innovators to discuss and implement creativity, change, and positive discourse.

The goal is to bring great voices and minds into conversations and dialog about creative change. Change in the world, politics, and ourselves as artists and audience. Within the year of 2017, it is my hope that BlissQuest Publishing will have a funding option, and new works will be released to the market where we as creators can become influencers of a more peaceful, inspiring world.

All good stories begin with a revolution.

Vive la Story.

What is expected:

I am asking each creator to provide one monthly post, video or discussion around a provided monthly topic, and a photo to go with your post (photo doesn’t have to correlate but you do need to own the rights). I also ask that creators interact with three different posts or discussions on other artists’ pages a month. I also ask that creators boost one article or video a month (not just their own) on their social media platform. That’s one contribution, three comments, and a helping boost once a month.

  • One post on topic
  • Three cross-feed comments
  • One Boost

What you’ll receive:

In return you’ll receive an artist/creator profile page and wing on which to interact with audience, and link readers to your own personal pages, and body of work (alternate websites, storefronts, Patreon sites, kickstarters, etc.) a quarterly web interview and bump about what you’re working on, what releases you have coming up and where you’re innovating with art.

You’ll also receive an advertising space on the website, and feedback and interaction from other creators meeting their three-comments cross-functional interaction.

Each creator will be given a login to Wisegoddess WordPress, with a creator page they can upload their posts on. When they submit for review it will be cleared by a second pair of eyes (it won’t be perfect, but it will get a second pass for typos and grammar).

Topics for the first three months are:

January = What does fair trade / sustainable art mean to you?

February = What does diversity in entertainment mean to you?

March = How can we unite as artists and creators to support positive change in a politically unstable time?

April = Open to suggestions moving forward

The guardrails:

All creators are asked to acknowledge the Wisegoddess Code of Conduct and Ethics.

All Creators are expected to courteously participate in discussions.

All Creators are allowed to post more if they choose to, no obligation.

All Creators are allowed to plug themselves and their own projects and needs, but not more than a couple times a month. (The idea is to let your work and interactions become the plug to your links sites and needs)

By invitation only:

If you’d like an invitation to this round table community, please write in, and I’ll be in touch! I welcome any suggestions of creators and innovators you believe would be a good fit.

As a round table environment, I welcome any and all feedback and discourse. We might not always agree, but through positive friction, new creations, ideas, and story can be built.

Follow-up:

The last week of March, 2017 I will send out a questionnaire to see if you’re still interested in participating. I’ll provide survey questions about what worked and didn’t and what we can do differently.  Have we created a safe, inspiring trend toward a new social story?

Say YES!

If you’re interested, please let me know and I’ll begin the setup of your instructions and user account over the holiday season for a 2017 launch. I truly hope you’ll give us a try. It will be an amazing adventure and I would dearly love to have you along.

Thank you so much for your consideration. I look forward to hosting you on Wisegoddess.com.

Sincerely,

Athena

Wisegoddess is soft launching right this very moment – the world launch is in March. Be ready! Check out Wisegoddess.com as it gets up and moving. I’m getting structured and prepped for arts, business, and entertainment discussions.

We are here to create – let’s make this world a reflection of our inner stories, not the stories thrust upon us.

I’m targeting writers on my feeds and in my circles, but all artists are welcome to contribute. Graphic novelists, illustrators, theater folk, dancers, musicians, painter, and performers of all kinds. Art is multitude, expression, story. If you knit, cook, sew, or do photography and want to write an article, do it!

If you want ad space for your storefront, newsgroup, event, or book – let me know if something is coming up in your submission and I’ll try and schedule an earlier ad space, prior to an article release for buildup. If you need early coverage for a show, signing or launch, work with me, and we’ll see how to schedule earlier publicity, even if your story is queued later.

The ad space (ad to be approved), an interview or promotion, and $25 is contingent on the signing of a contributors code of conduct, to refuse negative interactions on the blog with commenters. Dangerous or unhealthy commenters and trolls will be removed from comment sections – contributors are not required to participate with readers and commenters, but if so choosing, they must adhere to the rules of positive interaction and ethics, which will be delivered with a release and short contract if your article is picked. This is a site to find solutions, create new ways of art, knit audience and provide pathways – positivity and courtesy are mandatory for the process of trust, and respect to rebuild bridges between disenfranchised audiences, and often under recognized creators. Trust.

Want to participate in the progress? Join the adventure!

Submissions are open as of the 02/24/2016.

  • Saying “No” to free work
  • How to articles on craft (any craft)
  • Tutorials on process

These are just a few topics I’m interested in having conversations about on the website. These are first time publication rights for the US. Wisegoddess rights do not expire, but you can publish elsewhere after six months (courtesy is usually a year). I’ll be hiring an editor for short articles, grammar and spelling only (the polish). Photos and Illustrations, and videos are negotiable with guarantee of copyright and model release.

Please think of Wisegoddess as a place to get the word out on topics that relate to our future as artists, and our ability to make a fair, sustainable living from our crafts. Please use this site as a way to reach broader audiences and spread the word on topics related to those very audiences and their inclusion in the human story with fair and equal representations in our entertainment industry.

Thank you so much for considering Wisegoddess as a publication and media platform!

Sincerely,

Athena
