“I believe it’s critical to our culture and our society that people from every conceivable background have the opportunity to share their stories, and find stories that resonate with them and their experience.”
Director of Publishing at Kickstarter
Kickstarter has successfully completed 10,344 publishing campaigns (aka, books), 881 Journalism based campaigns, and 4,534 comics (as of Dec. 12, 2016) not to mention stories told fell into many other categories such as art, etc.
And each of these campaigns had to tell their story to get funded before the books told theirs.
This is proof that stories that resonate… resonate.
