Washington D.C – Syllble, a science fiction and fantasy production and publishing house, has been selected to participate in the Spring 2019 – 202Creates Residency Program. The program, which is run by the Office of Cable TV, Film, Music, and Entertainment (OCTME) and the Department of Media and Public Affairs (DMPED), provides creative entrepreneurs with the resources and support they need to start and scale their businesses.
Syllble was founded in 2018 by Fabrice Guerrier, a Haitian-American science fiction and fantasy author. The company’s mission is to provide a platform for diverse voices and creative expression, and to help writers from all backgrounds share their stories. Syllble’s approach to worldbuilding is unique. The company partners with community colleges and universities to bring together creative writers and visual artists from different backgrounds. These groups work together to create new fictional worlds, and the resulting stories are published by Syllble.
Founder Fabrice Guerrier is one of 32 participants selected for the program. Syllble’s participation in the 202Creates Residency Program will provide the company with access to a number of resources, including:
- Structured entrepreneurship curriculum
- Featured speakers and experts
- One-on-One business coaching office hours
- Monthly Co-working Days
- A cohort model so that you know you are never going it alone
- Mentorship pairing and networking
- Access to an alumni network of local creative entrepreneurs
The program culminates with a pitch session and ceremony where participants present their business ventures and projects, featured remarks by a notable DC creative entrepreneur and a certificate of completion from Mayor Muriel Bower presents 202Creates Initiative and the Office of Cable TV, Film, Music, and Entertainment.
“We are thrilled to be selected to participate in the 202Creates Residency Program,” said Fabrice Guerrier, founder and CEO of Syllble. “This program will provide us with the resources and support we need to take Syllble to the next level. We are excited to learn from the other participants and to share our own experiences with them.”
