Authors in Real Life
Connecting readers and authors
What is Authors in Real Life?
As an author, one of the things I would most like to do is connect with schools and libraries to help encourage the love of reading in kids. It's not always easy to find schools looking to bring in authors, though.
The mission of Authors in Real Life will be connecting schools, libraries, conferences, events, etc with authors. Our index of speakers will be searchable by geographic location, the speaker's expertise, topics covered in their books, and diversity tags, too. I want to make it easier for schools looking to bring in marginalized writer to find them, and I also want to make it harder for conferences to claim they can't.
Right now this project is in the nascent stages of its development, so your feedback could help shape the directions the project takes. If you could take a couple of minutes to fill out the survey below, I would greatly appreciate it. <3
For a site that helped me connect with schools and events, I would be willing to pay
$150 or more per year
Between $125 and $149.99 per year
Between $100 and $124.99 per year
Between $75 and $99.99 per year
Less than $75 per year
I like the idea, but I wouldn't/can't pay for it.
I don't think a site like this would be useful.
What would you hope to see included in a site like this?
What tools or resources would be most useful to you?
What do you think of calling the site Authors in Real Life?
I like it!
Please change it.
Would you be willing to donate to a startup fundraiser to help me launch the site?
Absolutely! Whatever I can do.
Yes, but only in exchange for special member benefits when the site launches.
I can't, but I'll definitely help promote it!
Anything to add that isn't covered above?
Can I contact you with further questions or news about Authors IRL?
No, thank you.
