An Invitation to Contribute to Anam Cara's Blog:
Probably the best part of being Anam Cara’s Director is getting to know the writers- and artists-in-residence and their work. They have taught me and each other much about the creative process. Their genre or medium may be similar to someone else’s, but their approach is always unique and inspirational.
So, it seems way past time for all of that inspiration and information to be shared. Please describe for the blog readers how you work, what you're working on, what challenges you face, what techniques and approaches work for you, and/or what you are currently working on. Be sure to include information that will let us know where to see (and purchase! if you are at that stage) the end results of your creative process.
I'm so looking forward to your paying it forward to other creators. And thank you!
