Our Expertise, at Your Service. Core Offerings
Communications + Marketing
We've created successful campaigns for poets, philanthropics, and others.
From the "30 Minute Fastbreak" to the "Ask AKILA" full session, our consultations are both pragmatic and inspirational.
Our writers specialize in servicing artists, cultural orgs, non-profits, and entertainment companies.
Established in 1997, our email, social media, and mobile marketing solutions are known as Put On BLAST! (aka POB!).
We've helped authors, filmmakers & non-profits raise nearly $300K for their artistic projects. We can help you too!

Monthly Spotlight (Dec. 2020)
Chief Ayanda Clarke Co-Produced and Performed at "RISE UP! A Virtual Benefit Concert to #EndSARS" and it was POWERFUL!
It's our honor to support Chief Ayanda Clarke of THE FADARA GROUP in his humanitarian work, here and abroad. Most recently, he helped to mobilize a group of artists, activists, and spiritual leaders in the global movement to #EndSARS (just a few of them are highlighted here). Beyond performing at and co-producing the benefit concert in November, Chief Ayanda remains committed to this movement. He reminds us that our support is needed still. Please donate what you can today. Funds will go to a legal fund that's been established by local activists in Nigeria.
