INMAN, Kansas (PRWeb) — Freelance writer J. Basil Dannebohm, by special arrangement with the Kansas Sampler Foundation, is slated to write a series of articles showcasing rural Kansas.
“Prairie Profiles: the People, Places and Things of the Kansas Prairie,” will debut in February 2013 on Dannebohm’s website,http://www.uniquelybasil.com, and distributed through various media outlets.
“The rural communities of Kansas are full of fascinating stories. Sadly many go untold because they are off of the beaten path. The Kansas Sampler Foundation has served as a phenomenal advocate for rural Kansas. I am excited work with them to share the stories of the Kansas prairie,” Dannebohm said. “An impressive number of communities throughout the state have submitted unique story ideas since the foundation first sent out the feelers on this project.”
A native of Ellinwood, J. Basil Dannebohm is a writer, speaker and business consultant who spent the last several years in Colorado and most recently California. In the summer of 2012, Dannebohm was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and decided to leave the corporate world to focus on his health and his writing. Basil will be returning to Kansas this February to begin work on the project.
Marci Penner, director of the Kansas Sampler Foundation, applauds the Prairie Profiles series.
“Exposure to Basil’s audience will be a big boost for our small towns. We’re thrilled for his interest. He has this uncanny ability to find a detail and turn it into a compelling story,” said Penner.
The Kansas Sampler Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization, serves to help keep rural communities viable. This is accomplished by educating the public about what there is to see and do in Kansas and by networking and supporting rural communities.
The Kansas Sampler Festival, an annual event showcasing rural life, will take place on May 4 and 5 in Liberal.
