Hello! Welcome to the Dream Foundry, a shiny new organization with a mission to help nurture and support the nascent careers of beginning professionals working in the speculative arts. If you like science fiction, fantasy, horror, the weird, the not-yet-realized, or the realm of what-if, we want to help the people who create that, regardless of the medium they work in.
This is our very first fundraising event and we need you to make it a success. We've already come a long way and done a lot of work, but we're just getting started. Later this year we're going to start launching our first initiatives. Those will include a forum with challenges to help creators practice their craft and hone their skills, mentors and professionals hanging out to offer advice and answer questions, and spaces for people to share ideas, network, and swap tips and resources. We'll also start hosting content on our site with articles ranging from industry news to how-to guides, interviews with professionals, and a whole lot more.
One of our core tenets is that professionals should be compensated for their work, and we believe in practicing what we preach. Some people have already generously donated time and content, but we do not want to depend on free labor to thrive. We've got a multi-pronged plan for raising funds, but this is the one where we need your help.
Over the last several weeks, we've been collecting items and offers that should appeal to fans and professionals working in the field. Some you could buy for yourself. Others would make great gifts. All of them are exciting, and we are eager for you to check them out and make a bid.
So step right up and come, help us dream with you.
Thank you for your support!
