Our Mission: Literary Manhattan was formed to promote literacy and the benefits of reading and to bolster the general public’s awareness of Manhattan’s rich literary history. Literary Manhattan intends to accomplish this purpose through its website, which will contain literary information and resources, by conducting guided tours of areas of literary significance in Manhattan, by developing resources for literacy programs, by sponsoring writing contests and scholarships, and establishing a museum in the future.
The homepage should introduce three elements of our company: Education, Tourism and Local Interest. See our existing website. We prefer our audience to access our information through a particular author so the homepage should give priority to the author category. Other categories are libraries, bookstores, publishing houses, entertainment (literary bars, restaurants, hotels), organizations, a literary map of Manhattan, a calender of events and finally, news. Also, Facebook and Twitter access.
Page two is the list of locations within each category and a brief description of the location
Page three is an expanded profile of each location and a way to reorganize your search. So, for example, if you click on Authors from the homepage, then select Mark Twain from the list of authors, this page will have a bio, including the ability to crossreference with related items in other categories. We are using Tags in our current Wordpress site. Try the Mark Twain example, and look at Hotel Chelsea to see how we're currently cross-referencing other items.
Page four is an interactive literary map of Manhattan. We would like people to be able to view every category within a particluar region. Possibly by neighborhood or zipcode, and filterable by category.
