So many individuals and groups have contributed to this nation's character and progress in ways that are both large and small. It helps us all to know a little more about what came before.
There are so many names and figures in history to choose from. There is no shortage to the possibility of particularly themes of history, or concentrating in particular subject areas.
As a nonprofit, we work to develop a variety of funding mechanisms. Grants are an essential strategy, but our goals are to be diverse and flexible in our sponsorship and patronage. Private philanthropists have the ability to quickly enable our organizational functions. With appropriate financial support, we will deploy the resources and talent of a hired staff and other appropriate personnel and execute the mission of the organization.
Graphic novels have a fixed set of costs when connected to the expertise and resources of WBP. Our goal is to pass credit and appropriate compensation for graphic illustration. 60% of the cost per issue goes to artist compensation.
A graphic account is always the most memorable. While it may not be a story about fictional superheroes, it is about often unsung heroes. We owe more to them than superheroes.
Our graphic publications make use of the deliberate care and organization that museums and historical collections take to preserve our national identity. This is an excellent extended way to share that with readers.The archival collections of museums are organized so that they can be shared. We work to connect that directly to reading and learning.
An engaging graphic account, supported properly, will present biographies in a wholly new way. There are automatic and unique connections to each academic subject through a cross-disciplinary learning experience
Learned through a narrative, people's stories resonate more deeply. Seeing the connection to the world around, instead of being given a roster of facts to memorize.
Telling the truth of the story and the times. That is how we learn.
As humans, we are always on the lookout for better ways to engage in what we do and how we do it.
Yet, we should not leave our history behind.
We cannot do this alone. With your sponsorship, we are working to create a new genre of ways to learn. We design these with compatibility to classroom settings, but with the possibility of much more!
We are eager to put our intended titles into development. Our strategy is built around the development of single and multiple titles across each year. This applies to each series.
