"Before working with The Void Academy, the thought of raising $20,000 for our art felt like attempting to climb Mount Everest without an oxygen mask. You helped us locate masks and get up that mountain."
— Abraham Burickson, co-founder of the experimental performance group Odyssey Works
"Let’s face it — many of us poets, writers, dancers, and artists are great at what we do, but clueless when it comes to web design, social networking, and self-promotion. That’s where the The Void Academy comes in — to help us bridge that gap. And what a great vision they have! With their invaluable skills and support, I am seeing new possibilities for my work. I am, quite simply, thrilled."
— Nin Andrews, poet, artist, author of Why God Is A Woman
"Without The Void Academy, I don't think that I would have evolved to a place in my art where I felt like I could start being myself — making money and art on my own terms."
"I love how the courses lend themselves to one other. Being able to apply methods of community building and engagement directly to my web presence has opened my mind to a world of possibility that I had not considered before taking these courses. Thank you, Void!"
"I absolutely love what you are doing. I find your information extremely insightful and I'm looking forward to hearing what your future courses offer."
"I applaud your work. It helped me greatly. Community building is not my strong suit and I have a feeling that I am not an exception."
"The Void Academy is the source of my confidence when it comes to feeling assured that my crowdfunding campaign is growing out of a strong, organized foundation. If you make the wise choice to take their courses, the beating heart of your project will not be overlooked."
— Lauren Renner, artist, creator of the award-winning photographic series In Others Words
"I look forward to a better world for artists thanks to The Void Academy!"
— Harley Spiller, Deputy Director of Franklin Furnace
"The Void Academy has given us new perspectives on the possibilities available to our independent literary press. Their talented and visionary team has inspired us to recommit to our mission. They don't just fill the void in arts funding, they turn it inside out."
