FYI [IRP] Get Your LIFE again, calling for web series &film submissions & Short Film Sundays @awkwardblkgrl

Happy New Year!
Hoping that your new year has had a fantastic start and that the rest of the year will politely follow. We have some news and exciting opportunities to share with you. Some of it you may want to share to prompt the creatives in your circle. Before we get to it, if you’d like to add a friend to this list, you can have this newsletter forwarded to them, just like that.

GLOW ON AND ON

From Amanda’s vastly different exes, to learning the giving and then more giving nature of a particular fruit to an amazing array of cameos and encounters to meeting her favorite celebrity and guru (although a beautiful gesture from a good friend who failed to warn her about her attire for such an event), Amanda’s newfound sunny outlook met good times and moments shrouded in hilarity. Now would be the perfect time to revisit the entire season all over again and while you’re at it, find and follow the creator of the series, Amanda Seales and let her know how you appreciated, “Get Your Life.”

get your life | episode 1

WE’RE LOOKING FOR WEB SERIES

Have a series you would like to submit to Issa Rae Productions?  We’re looking for 2 to 3 episodes, shot and edited as a web series. Submissions can range from dramas to comedies and even animated series. Email links to submit@issarae.com.

 

SHORT FILM SUNDAYS

What better way to spend a Sunday night than watching the latest film project from extremely unique talent. Our first feature will be “Ladylike” from Tiffany Johnson. We’re really excited about bringing #ShortFilmSundays to you.

We’re also welcoming submissions for #ShortFilmSundays, as well. Email your project to submit@issarae.com.

LET’S TALK

on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Thank you ABGNation for all of your support.

We appreciate you more than you could ever know.

Stay awkward.

NEW: Share a Kindle Instant Preview

Must read! Awesome tool to promote your work on your site with @Amazon’s help

chrismcmullen

Instant Preview Link

KINDLE INSTANT PREVIEW

Better than a link.

Better than a cover.

Visitors can now start reading your book immediately, without having to leave your website.

It’s the new Kindle Instant Preview.

FEWER CLICKS

Every click loses traffic. It’s a fact of marketing.

Plus it’s hard to send people offsite. They’re busy doing one thing. “Hey! Stop what you’re doing. Go somewhere else instead.” Well, you might throw in a “PRETTY PLEASE.”

Now you can overcome both obstacles.

With Kindle Instant Preview, customers can read the sample of your Kindle book without having to leave your website.

If they like the sample, a direct link will take them to the purchase.

If they need a Kindle app, a link is included for that, too.

THERE’S MORE

Font sizes are adjustable, too.

Even better: Amazon will pay you to use Kindle Instant Preview.

You can use…

#MotownWriters Author Newsletter: Dr @EddieConnorJr …Walk By Faith #michlit #motownlit

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. affirmed, “Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” This week think BIGGER!

Using only sight will impair you, but accessing the power of vision will prepare and propel you to the next level. You can’t walk by faith, if the wrong thoughts are running through your mind.

Step out of doubt, negativity, and fear. Understand that fear will paralyze you, but only faith will mobilize you. 

Create something from nothing and sketch every step to success. Don’t look around you, dig deep for the resources within you. Walk by Faith!

[New post on Indies Unlimited} Self-Publishers May Want to Try For Library of Congress Cataloging #MotownWriters

Self-Publishers May Want to Try For Library of Congress Cataloging

by RJ Crayton

Library of CongressYou’re a self-published author, and someone has suggested you get yourself an LCCN. You’ve never heard of an LCCN and are wondering if maybe you need to find out more. Well, this is your stop. We’re talking LCCNs today.

First off, what are they? LCCN stands for Library of Congress Control Number. It’s a unique identifier issued by the Library of Congress (LOC) to books that get included in their collection. Some people desire this number because librarians across the nation and the world tend to catalog their books using the LCCN number. There is only one LCCN per book, whereas each edition of a book requires a new ISBN (eBook, paperback, hardback, special editions), and will likely have multiple ISBNs.

If it sounds appealing, how do you get one? Read more of this post

MWN Blog Archive Michigan Humanities Council Heritage Grants application deadline is March 21, 2016 @mihumanities

Heritage Grants

????????
Click here to apply http://www.michiganhumanities.org/heritage-grants/
Michigan is a state with many stories. Some have been told often, and others not at all. With funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Michigan Humanities Council’s Heritage Grants Program supports projects that explore local histories of race, ethnicity, and cultural identity in Michigan. These competitive grants will be awarded to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations to support exhibits, digital projects, oral history programs, documentaries, cultural ceremonies, community conversations, and other activities that aim to share the history, experiences, vitality, and authentic voices of cultural identity groups in Michigan. By exploring history, projects should aim to examine connections between past inequities, present-day barriers to success, and opportunities for advancing racial equity today.
MHC Staff will offer feedback on draft proposals submitted between December 1, 2015 and January 25, 2016. The final application deadline is March 21, 2016 at 5:00 pm. Grants will be awarded in early June, 2016. The maximum grant request is $25,000. Detailed guidelines can be found here. We welcome creativity and encourage applicants to think beyond the general ideas above. Organizations must be a 501c3 nonprofit or partner with an organization that is in order to be eligible. MHC may be able to help smaller organizations partner with a 501c3. Larger organizations such as colleges and universities will need to demonstrate evidence of meaningful, mutually beneficial partnerships with community organizations in their final application to have a competitive proposal. Individuals are not eligible.
Click here to apply http://www.michiganhumanities.org/heritage-grants/
When we hear, see, or remember only one story, we risk misunderstanding the cultural heritage of our state. Heritage Grants are intended to promote a deeper understanding of our past by empowering groups whose stories are often not told or remain unseen to share the history of Michigan from their perspective. There is never only a single story about a group of people or a place. Heritage Grants support projects that bring the authentic voices of cultural identity groups to the foreground and help the people of our state understand cultural differences.
Questions and inquiries should be directed to Joe Cialdella (jcialdella).
