About this project

The In Place series is where our vision for Extract(s) began. Chris and I were professors at Chester College of New England, Kyle and Meg students in their senior year. Seeing an opportunity to create a unique team, the four of us started working together to produce the online reading series in October 2011.

In Place has become the cornerstone of our web-based literary project, which officially launched as Extract(s) in late February 2012. The site publishes something new Monday-Friday, and averages more than 100 unique views each day. The total number of views is nearing 18,000 right now. We believe our loyal fans will make this fundraising effort as successful as the website has become.

We have been fortunate to have so many talented writers within our midst to help us launch and support our In Place series for the past several months. However, to keep this series vibrant, we need to be able to send Kyle, the director and videographer for In Place, to where the writers are. The funds we raise through this effort will do three things:

  • Pay Kyle for his work. He has volunteered ALL of his time thus far, and we don't want to lose him to some other paid gig. Yes, he's THAT good.
  • Pay for travel expenses (gas, food, lodging when necessary).
  • Purchase recording equipment to enhance the overall quality of our videos. While Extract(s) was not affiliated with Chester College of New England, the photography department was kind enough to let us use its video equipment. The college was closed in May 2012, leaving us to scramble to continue to create videos at the same production level.

We are confident the same network of readers, writers, fans, friends, and family that have supported us so far, who see the value in what we are doing, will step forward and help us achieve this goal.

Thank you,

Jenn Monroe
