About The Love Story Media, Inc.
The Love Story Media, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 that uses the arts to address depression and prevent suicide.
Using a proprietary multimedia platform that fuses digital and print, we’ve created a new way of journaling. Our guided journaling platform accompanies our participants as they transform their pain into emerging artistry. Our interactive live-shows, interviews with indie and established artists, inspiring documentary interviews with photography and on-line journalings serve as key points of engagement and contact with our audience. To date over 200 individuals including associate producers, interviewers, filmmakers, editors, photographers, illustrators, advisers, established and emerging artists have contributed to this effort.

Our mission is to inspire, educate, and transform those who are dealing with heartache to choose creative expression instead of self-destruction when dealing with personal adversities.
What We Do
We produce journaling workshops, and an interactive journal of intimate interviews of artists sharing their pain to passion journey, turning these stories into an interactive journal, and interactive showcases providing a community where artists may inspire other artists to awaken our inner artist.
Why We Do
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among young adults ages 25-34 and depression is the leading cause of suicide. Depression is a major symptom of heartbreak. Through creative expression we are able to create a love story through our adversities.
The Grant Committee Member Position:
We are looking to form a team of competent individuals to grantseek and grant write for our organization. We plan to initially pursue grants that will allow our work to be adapted by volunteer groups within colleges and high schools across the nation. This will allow us to support youths at their most vulnerable and continue to use that support as a base as they move into the 25-34 age range described above.
As a member of our Grant Committee, you will be expected to remotely participate in team meetings, operating both cooperatively and independently as we work to pursue this task. We are thus looking for driven and passionate team players who will bring a variety of skills and perspectives to our work. Good written and oral communication, a basic understanding of non-profit structure and finance, analytic ability, creativity, and interpersonal skills are key.
If this description fits you, and our mission excites you, we hope to hear from you soon.
