Become a Workshop Facilitator


Thank you for taking part in the upcoming Black History Literary Affair. Our theme is "Give the Gift of Knowledge." This is a exciting time for us all! I can't wait to meet you online. The BAN Radio event kicks off Jan. 25 - Mar. 7, 2009, please join us on the air.

We seek to bring together our modern day Griots to share with us the history of our people and to lead us into the future. Please submit the information listed below within 7 days, so that we can create your information for the blog workshops. Follow the instructions to the letter, so that it makes it easier for my staff to upload your material.

Keep this one thought in mind: more is NOT better on the Internet. The shorter you can keep your text, the more likely you will be in getting readers to respond. During the workshops, break up long posts, articles or information into a series of posts. Spell check and edit all material before submitting, no revisions or repostings after we post it to the Internet. It is solely your responsibility to edit.

All bio information should be kept to ONE paragraph. Only ONE book or business promoted per promotional workshop. If you miss a scheduled event, it will not be rescheduled during February. We are on a really tight schedule to get all participants on the radio show in one hour and to get all information posted. If you are serious about becoming a EDC Creations Workshop Facilitator, you can prepare your material in advance, email it to me and just wait until your show date. If for some reason you can't make the live radio show, your workshop can still continue. This helps us to not mislead our fans and to give them exactly what we advertised.
Email me for the full workshop details via pdf:
