I’ve always believed artists, musicians and writers are of one heart, their differences just a matter of how that universal beat is experienced and shared. Author and poet Diane Ackerman says “the art of the brain is to use poetry to navigate the world”, and undoubtedly it is the very personal way our brains process information that dictates what we create and what others take from those creations. For those of us who long for our creative passions to be the primary focus of our lives, the challenges of translating that passion to a livable wage is daunting.
As a writer, the frustrations of trying to use my “poetry” to navigate the world made me realize there are tons of talented people struggling to do the same. While today’s technological opportunities offer more creative outlets and opportunities than ever, the multitude of choices, time involved and skills required can be discouraging.
