Dream Projects: How Publishers and Authors Can Use Kickstarter for Fundraising and Community Building

desktopOver 15,000 publishing projects have been successfully funded by over on Kickstarter since it launched in 2009, with over $170M raised. These projects have run the gamut from a single book, graphic novel, or zine to an event, festival, bookstore, or an entire season of books.

But Kickstarter isn’t just a place to raise money. It’s a platform that helps creators connect deeply with their supporters.

Margot Atwell, the Director of Publishing, will teach an intensive course on everything you need to know to achieve success on Kickstarter, including:

  • Telling your story

  • Planning your project

  • Building and expanding your community

  • Using Kickstarter tools to understand your community better

  • Creating sustainable success after the project ends
