An Open Letter to Burgeoning Photographers

'Newly Paved" © Bryan Cooper 2012

Working title: Can you improve as an artist without judging others I’ve been reading a lot of Zack Arias’ Q&A tumblr blog. As a professional he has provided a much needed voice for those just beginning in their career – by being extremely blunt. You know who is one of those people just starting out? […]

Creative Challenge: Stealing from the Greats

The First Line

Well. Stealing inspiration, anyway. And a first line! The challenge this week is to take the first line of a book (a book you love, a book you hate, a book you’ve never read) and use it as your own first line. Write any kind of piece you want. Remember to cite the source of […]

Creative Challenge #6 response

Wow, so we’ve been slacking a bit here! Sorry about that, folks. If you recall, last week’s creative challenge was themed abstract or surreal. Bryan took a pretty cool picture, I think! Here it is: I love how it could be snow, or bubbles, or some weird foam thing, or maybe even a strange bacteria […]

Abstract or Surreal | Creative Challenge


This week we’re delving headfirst into the intentionally nonsensical. I’ll admit this challenge is a little bit selfish. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen abstract literature. Maybe some of Becketts’ stuff. Surrealist could probably be done more easily with words. I just really want to see what Jessica does with this :). I also […]

Letterbox | Creative Challenge

I love letters. Snail mail is one of my favorite things on the planet. There is nothing quite like getting a letter in the mail and knowing that someone took the time to write it, as well as spent the money to send it. It makes me feel all warm and glowy. This week’s challenge […]
