& Travel


Our Mission

To facilitate education through international publication, funding, and travel.

Zemii Media and Publishing Group, LLC is the for-profit arm. Zemii Tours is part of Zemii Media and Publishing Group, LLC.

Zemii Press is a separate nonprofit traditional publishing house. Our goal is to help expand publication of books into the larger global market from voices not frequently heard due to the constraints of the current publishing industry and the barriers faced in getting their stories outside of their smaller markets, if they were able to be published at all. 

The for-profit business is separate. However, its goal is to help fund the nonprofit so that we can help more authors. This does include publication of theatrical works. 

To us, "publishing, funding, and travel" is a mini-mission statement that summarizes how we plan to support authors. Our goal is to not only help authors produce quality work and bring it to the market, but to also expand literacy and awareness of other cultures and ways of thinking.  The funding component is tied to helping other nonprofits to continue expanding their services (which fiscal sponsorship will soon be available to nonprofits and artists in the near future). The travel portion helps people to experience these cultures first-hand. It is an educational mission. Those who travel will know that they are helping to expand education, literacy, and global awareness with every trip they take.

Mission: To facilitate education through international publication, funding, and travel. 

Many of you are international and have often struggled with getting your voices heard in the sea of needs clamoring for funding. We've written narratives that would utterly break your heart, so we're fully exposed to the extremes of need, the diversity of issues, and how culture can be a huge barrier. We also travel.

Travel for us isn't about a grand vacation, it is about education, understanding, and perspective. We do provide luxury travel services for those desiring this experience. Part of what makes a nonprofit successful is knowing how to merge the haves with the have nots. Everyone can participate in a way that makes them feel constructive, meaningful, and comfortable. We also offer donor travel packages and destination fundraisers if they would be helpful to the nonprofits we serve.

Grant writing services are available to nonprofits at every stage.

We are also going to start offering fiscal sponsorship to those who do not have their own 501(c)(3) status for various reasons. Some are artists, who only need a fiscal sponsor for the occasional grant. Others are in foreign lands who cannot place themselves inside of the USA physically in order to qualify for their own nonprofit status. The MAJORITY of grant funding available worldwide comes from the USA. So, there are many who have to create very elaborate situations in order to access funding. Not all governments are very supportive of nonprofit efforts. Nonprofit efforts, regardless of nation, always address critical issues that ultimately DO IMPACT everyone - regardless of nation. We are not in isolation. What happens in one area of the world does ripple out and impact others. We will update you when the fiscal sponsorship option is available. The fiscal sponsorship focus will be on literacy programs or artists/theatrical productions that address social issues who produce materials for publication (composers, playwrights, etc.).

Nonprofit Basics Courses cover Governance, Fundraising CycleFundraising Event Planning, and Grant Funding. The Full Course covers all four for a discount.

For those who wish to partake in our Stories Alive! pre-arranged book-themed tours, your purchase does help contribute toward the publication of an under-represented author's work being published and marketed globally. If you decide to book independently using our own hotel, car rental, and tours booking portal, your sale helps to support these authors as well. If you want a customized group trip created for your family or organization, don't hesitate to reach out. 

For those who use our self-booking portal, we also have a Hotel Concierge Membership that can provide wholesale rates on hotels. This membership is not a self-directed choice. If we see that you have booked on our portal and there is a substantial difference between the retail and wholesale rates (we don't control these - the hotel does), then we will contact you directly and discuss the option of the Hotel Concierge Membership to save you hundreds on your travel. This can be especially helpful to nonprofits who are looking to save as much as possible in their travel expenses. Using this service also helps support our author platform. Imagine donating while also spending less than the retail rate simultaneously.

As part of our fundraising efforts, we also will hold contests, like our current "One-Act Play Contest" to help drive funding for the publishing house to help another author get their book published. The winner will not only win cash (this contest offers a $1,000 prize to the winner), it also offers publishing and marketing services to get their work distributed and performed where they can then earn additional royalties and simultaneously help spread awareness of their topic. We are 100% supportive of education through theater.

Our writing, editing, and grant writing services are also supportive of the nonprofit publishing house. So, getting help for your own needs also helps others achieve theirs. You too can have a ripple effect on the world.

Nonprofit Basics: Starting & Funding

Nonprofit Basics is a book founded on over 25 years of experience in the nonprofit, education, research, and arts worlds. The purpose in writing this book is to better prepare nonprofits to improve their structure and functionality so that they can be more grant ready and attractive to potential funders. Without funders, many would not be able to do the work that they do.

In the many years of doing this work, I have witnessed a multitude of misunderstandings, lack of awareness, and misguided decisions that ultimately harm the very organization that is trying to seek funding. It is with this in mind that I present this work as a means to help any nonprofit (new or not) to make more constructive strategic decisions that will make a foundation or large donor feel comfortable with contributing to your cause.

This book will not go over the way in which you should manage your day to day operations. What it will cover are the basics for starting a nonprofit, the critical factors that involve governance, how to approach fundraising, and lastly the grant funding process. This book consists of a Start-Up Guide, and four parts: Governance, Fundraising, Planning a Fundraising Event, and Grants. This will help you to find the sections that you need to focus on so that you can strengthen and improve your efforts. Ultimately resulting in increased funding for your organization.

RootEd: How Trauma Impacts Learning and Society

Contemporary education and the majority of school reform efforts have continuously moved toward maladaptations that are increasingly responsible for a number of problems facing young people and our world at large. The emerging field of epigenetics, neuroscience, and psychology may offer support for this contention and can contribute to new levels of awareness and action relating to problems and prospects in education, parenting, and overall societal change. With this assumption in mind, I propose a theoretical analysis that attempts to answer the following question: “How do epigenetic, neuroscience, and psychology theories support a call for education reforms based on brain development response to trauma and adaptations to teaching and learning for those with trauma ancestry or history?”

This work covers the way in which our current educational systems, teaching methods, parenting methods, and attitudes about children are impacting their brain development and contributing to the level of increasing narcissism and abuse in our society. This book will offer in-depth research covering the rationale behind this premise and steps that can be taken in order to reverse course for this current trajectory for our society and the youth in our care. 

  “The relevance of an epigenetic impact induced by multi-generational trauma is one aspect of what has come to be known as the Maafa (pronounced mah-AH-feh), a Swahili word meaning “a great horror,” that began with the Transatlantic slave trade and continues with PTSS and the ongoing effects of an exclusionary social structure. For this reason, I’m interested in your research."
