To encourage literacy throughout the United States, Shadow Play Entertainment and its partners are gearing up for a historic literary journey of a lifetime: to find the next big thing in publishing. They realize that reading is not only important, but providing quality entertainment to the masses is also vital. Introducing "The Write Stuff" (http://www.thewritestufftv.com), a new reality show designed to assist individuals in their quest to get their work recognized, as well as network with those who have made it in the industry.

This new project will not only encourage creativity but also provide assistance to those who are looking to make it in the world of publishing. Hosted by Creator and Executive Producer Cyrus A. Webb (Shadow Play Entertainment/ Conversations Book Club), the show will take fourteen (14) contestants who have drive, ambition and the willingness to succeed through 14 weeks of challenges to prepare them for the competitive literary world.

Airing in select cities (on the CW Channel and select My Network Channels) and ABC affiliates as a paid program, the show will be seen by over 20 million households. After airing, all episodes will be available on The Write Stuff TV channel on Youtube found at http://www.youtube.com/thewritestufftv. As new markets open, previous episodes will be re-aired with the finale airing simultaneously.

"The Write Stuff" will put the contestants in the faces of those who can make it happen for them in the publishing world and those who can give them the tools they need to be successful. At stake is the ultimate prize for those who want to make their mark in the industry: a ONE-BOOK DEAL provided by AG Press! Along with the book deal and recognition of having "The Write Stuff," come a brand new Dell Laptop and a prize package of marketing tools and a promotional campaign worth over $16,000. There will also be features in Conversations Magazine (online and print), Poetic Monthly Magazine (online and print), Crunk Magazine (online and print), and Hype Magazine, along with other publications across the country!

Live auditions began in January 2009 and already several contestants have been chosen to compete during this historic project. Below are those who have secured their space for the first episode:

Houston, TX Auditions: Geremy Howard, Shenedria Ridley and Tommie Townsley
Atlanta, GA Auditions: Dr. M.F., David Dickson and Darrell Bruner
Jackson, MS Auditions: Keyana Hawthorne, Justina Wheelock and DeAna Davis
Memphis, TN Auditions: Sybil Marie Presley, Sefu "Powwah" Uhuru, Crystal L. Johnson and Moffatt "Mister" Nelson
There have also been finalists that have emerged who will go through one more challenge to see if they will join the cast. They are JJ "Jerry" Harrison, Kendall Dorrell, Angela H. Brown, Ross Walton, Monique Williams and LaKeisha Young-Sanders.

Online auditions via Youtube are being accepted until Monday, March 2, 2009. Details are available at http://www.thewritestufftv.com. Judges include up-and-coming as well as best-selling authors from across the country. There is no doubt that this project will be one for the record books, getting national attention, as well as helping many contestants make a name for themselves---all while encouraging literacy for those watching at home and online.
