Introducing, READ3Zero!

It is with great pleasure, that I introduce the next movement from Ozuna Publications, in conjunction with my friend Melissa M. Williams of LongTale Publishing...


On the homefront...

As many of you know, I am now the online marketing manager for Melissa M. Williams, author of the Iggy the Iguana children's chapter book series and CEO of LongTale Publishing. We have partnered together to create a new program designed to support and conquer illiteracy at home. It is called: READ3Zero. The objective is to help identify and make an outward stance (Tshirts) against or within the fight for literacy. You and your child can commit to reading 30 minutes a day--at home--and wear a TShirt that identifies your family as winners in this fight against childhood illiteracy!

In the community...

READ3Zero will also partner with businesses to help fund literature to title-1 schools, day cares, hospitals, etc. (wherever children are in need) to get books in the hands of our youth. Also, since Melissa and I are creative by nature, we are now accepting short-story submissions for children, grades 3~8, to publish in a short-story anthology as part of READ3Zero entitled: "I Write: Short Stories Written for Kids, by Kids." READ3Zero will publish this anthology to help gain recognition for children with a knack and talent for writing. We are also in the process of compiling submission guidelines for artwork, for the cover of this book. So, if your child isn't one to write, but loves to draw or paint, their artwork may become the cover-art for this first anthology!

If you know a child who is creative and want to help nourish their creative spirit, this is a great opportunity. If you are a business owner, you can purchase books through READ3Zero which will be distributed within your businesses community! The recipients will receive notification [that] your business and staff have helped in the fight against illiteracy!
