It all started with a thought 5 years ago of keeping my neighborhood informed of the events occurring within Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. For about 2 years we were going strong! And then Val’s Word! stalled. It went into a kind of hibernation, a cocoon.
Like a caterpillar after it’s metamorphosis, Val’s Word! is spreading it’s wings.
Val’s Word! orginated as a newsletter for the community of Bedford Stuyvesant and will continue to be so. However, in addition to the newsletter comes the website, and the publishing company Val’s Word! Publishing. The first book release under Val’s Word! Publishing is TOTM! Time Of The Month! The Essential Planner for Women and Girls of All Ages currently available on Amazon.com.
You can look forward to some of the same features of the previous Val’s Word! along with some new editions. You can still get Val’s Word! updates to your email. And complimentary copies of Val’s Word! will be in circulation March 2011 at the following businesses and mailbox near you:
Common Grounds, Bread Stuy, Little Red Boutique, The Bush Doctor Juice Bar, Sista’s Place.
We now have Val’s Word! Publishing and we will be featuring Motivated Beauty TeenPreneur.
Val’s Word! is also looking for volunteer writers to contribute local stories and events.
Hope you enjoy the New Val’s Word! and as always….Keeping you informed!
