The growing catalog of nonfiction books, fictional stories, articles, poems, quote collections, essays, memoir, and artwork with art commentaries make Bright Skylark Literary Productions one of the better resources to which a podcaster or film production team might hope to gain access for an abundance of original high-quality source materials. Outfits like Universal Content Productions, owned by NBCUniversal, have already demonstrated the advantages of adapting such creative intellectual properties to the audio format and Hollywood has also taken notice of its many benefits to the film industry.
Bright Skylark may prove particularly appealing to podcasters focusing on storytelling, discussions of social justice issues, poetry, leadership strategies, spiritual philosophies, and ethical considerations. The same holds true for the film side of the media house. Simply put: such materials build audiences, engage them in continuous relationships, and expand opportunities for increasing revenue across multiple media platforms.

It's easy enough to see how the award-winning materials showcased at Bright Skylark and often featured on partner websites can benefit podcast and film producers hoping to connect with diverse audiences. But those unfamiliar with the extensive catalog might find the following lists of sample sources and links useful. Just as important as the titles already completed (if not more so) are those texts currently undergoing the fine-tuning process of editorial revision.
Parties interested in contracting for use of materials are invited to submit proposals and requests via the site's contact page or the form at the bottom of this page. Works designed for stage production have been omitted from this sample list pending further development. You are encourage to use the site search box to track down additional information.
