cj#889> seeking funding for a Livable & Peaceful World


Richard Moore

Dear cj,

As you all know, my efforts are now focussed on writing the book (Achieving
a Livable, Peaceful World), and my funds are nearly exhausted.  I'm
currently seeking an agent, which will hopefully lead to signing with a
publisher and getting some advances. But who knows how long that might
take, and advances for a first-time author might not amount to much.

So I'm seeking help to brainstorm possible funding sources.  Anyone out
there got any ideas?  There _must be some kind of grants available, or
people with money who want to support worthwhile projects.


Below is a note from Jay Kinney (who I'll be meeting in SF later this
month), and an invitation from Parveez Syed for people to participate in
his London-based radio show.

all the best,

I appreciate the appreciation roused by my mention of RK Moore's work in
Whole Earth. I'm one of the people on the cyberjournal mail list, so I saw
Richard's mention of wishing to contact me. He can do so directly at

BTW, since I live in San Francisco, if he is still around for a day or two
after his folk music visit in the area, I'd enjoy meeting up in person.

        The whole concept of moving beyond Left and Right has been one that
I've been working with for at least 20 years. An essay on the topic and
another on globalization by me can be found at my website:
