If you can imagine it, you can achieve it.

Sports are a powerful tool for engaging youth and helping them to build self confidence.   We have encounted many students who would rather talk sports than poetry.  Instead of extinguishing that passion and trying to fit students into our BOOKORAMA model, we built a program that uses sports as a cataylst for creativity and self discovery. The main objective of the SPORTS SHORTS program is to help students make connections between the playing field and their everyday life.  The founder of BOOKORAMA is a former NCAA division one athlete who became a tech and publishing entrepenuer by applying many of the lessons and skills learned through sports.


Sports shorts is a publishing program that successfully leverages the love that many students have for sports to help encourage and develop literacy and creativity.  Using this spin off of the BOOKORAMA student publishing program, participants will visualize positive outcomes and create amazing books that define the storybook endings they would hope to see.

Quick Facts

  • Each participant will receive their own published book

Big Shoes 2 Phil is a children’s book written and illustrated by BOOKORAMA creator Arnel Scott.  Initially the characters where developed as a demonstration excercise during a SPORTS SHORTS workshop.  Today, this book is used as  a teaching tool for students to learn about character design, page composition, story telling and other elements of publishing as they work on their own stories and illustrations.
