Adam J. Kurtz’s 2013 Weekly Planner Featured on Kickstarter

Adam J. Kurtz has raised $4,800 for his weekly planner project called “2013, Another Year of Unsolicited Advice & Anecdotes.” Kurtz originally set out with a fundraising goal of $1,600. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “Last year, I designed a new pocket-sized weekly planner, somewhere between DIY and “legible,” from the ground up. Fill-in resources and activities. Quick-look calendars and weekly pages with plenty of writing space. Random lined pages, grid pages, drawing pages, and compliments. Impending holiday warnings. I produced 40 at my old copy center job, and put the extra copies up for sale on my blog. They sold in days…This year I want to do it better.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
