Terrapin Hollow Educational Foundation 

A Non-profit Multimedia Company

The Children's Anthology Project has at last come to an end! With contributions from 32 seventh grade authors, Moonbeams and Maybes is a unique way of inspiring a lifelong love of reading and writing. Join us in congratulating these young authors in this accomplish-ment. By celebrating what they have done here, we're telling them that reading is more than something we do simply because it is requires of us. And when a child learns to love what they can accomplish through their blossoming literacy skills, they do more than just enrich their lives. They literally improve their chances of success in it.


A great way to show your support for your child's accomplishment is to give copies of this anthology as gifts to friends and family members. Not only will it show how proud you are of what they've done, but this simple purchase will help fund future Children's Anthology Projects. Copies of this book can be purchased through Amazon.com (link will be activated once book is live through Amazon) or through by contacting us directly at 501.253.5626, or at estevennewby @ gmail.com.



We'd also like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors, without whose support this project would not have been possible. Thank You.

CHILDREN'S ANTHOLOGY UPDATE


The anthology project we're doing with the Searcy County School District has had a few interesting turns in it. We've had to shift our project focus and audience, but the outcome is even more exciting. 


Instead of publishing the fictional works of twenty 8th graders, we'll be publishing the poetic works of thirty-two 7th graders! The poems should be in to us by the end of next week, and we'll begin layout and editing immediately. The artist we're commissioning to paint the cover has already been notified. Our goal is still to get these kids their books by the end of the year.  

We're putting together a children's theater workshop! Click here for details

Fundraiser Success!

Our Fundraiser has come to an end. To our surprise, we've pulled in $450! That's $150 more than our original target goal with the kickstarter campaign. We're humbled and honored by the outpouring of support from community, family and friends. Thank you so much for helping to make this project a reality. As the eighth-grader's writing projects evolve, we'll be posting updates here and on facebook. 

Current Events

We're excited to announce that we'll be helping an 8th grade English class here in Searcy County become published authors in an upcoming anthology of short fiction. Not only does this unique opportunity give the children something they'll be proud to share with their friends and families, it communicates to them that literacy skills--a mastery of which are vital for meaningful employment in the 21st century--are worth so much more than just a grade. 

We're launching our Kickstarter campaign to fund the publishing of the anthology, and hope you'll consider making a donation.  You can check out campaign here: Go to Campaign (Page will open in a new window.)

Updates on Kickstarter Campaign

We're at the half way point of our kickstarter.com fundraiser campaign, and have already received $200 in pledges! The support from the community has been inspiring, and we're confident that this exceptional educational opportunity will soon be a reality. 


If we meet our original goal of $300, we're going to set a stretch goal to commission a local artist to produce the cover image, which will definitely enhance the value and presentation of the book.

News

We had our first board meeting! Check out the minutes here.  

Terrapin Hollow Press is now Terrapin Hollow Educational Foundation. We're registered as a non-profit corporation in the state of Arkansas, and are currently processing the monstrously large volume of paperwork necessary to become an official 501(3)c.

Also, we should note, we are no longer an LLC.
Seven Stories from Seven Children: A Creative Writing Anthology, is now in print. This collection of stories was produced by a group of children, ages 7 to 13, who completed a four-week creative writing workshop. Each participant was then given a copy of their book!

To order additional copies of this anthology, click here to send us an email.

Thanks for supporting your child's education.

Terrapin Hollow Press is excited to announce the upcoming project A Trail of Wilted Posies: How the Hippies Lived On. This book will continue from an extensive interview series done twenty years before. It explores what happened with hippies when the counter culture movement fizzled, how many of them bought rural acreage and strove to live in accordance to their values. 


The project will be told via narrative non-fiction, and will follow the lives of several people who once called themselves hippies. It will showcase the communities they created or enhanced, the social dilemmas and environmental causes they championed, and their view of the world today. 


A Trail of Wilted Posies: How the Hippies Lived On is slated to be published in the fall of 2014.
