WHAT YOU'RE WORKING ON
I am SO EXCITED to introduce the What You're Working On series! It's a submission-based series where women creatives write a short piece detailing what they're currently working on. This is a great way for you as readers to get involved. I've always wanted The Creative Chronicle to be super interactive - and I realized pretty quickly that more people want to get interviewed than I can interview. But What You're Working On puts the power back in your hands - it's a fantastic way to submit an essay that lets everyone know exactly what you want to tell them about your work. Some bullet points you might consider hitting are:
- Why creating is important to you
- How you came up with this particular project
- Your process when creating this project
- A bit of your history as a creative
- What this project means to you
- Your goals for the project/where you see it going
Ideally the pieces will be between 500-750 words (about two paragraphs). These are explicitly meant to be shorter than the interviews, and simply a way to describe a single project you're passionate about. It would also be great if you could include 4 or 5 photos of your work for the feature as well, that way the readers can see exactly what you're working on. Be sure to include your Instagram and website (if you have one) so the readers can check your work out! If you're curious about what the feature looks like, check some of the recent ones out here.
You can write about anything you choose (as long as it's something you're working on!). Please email your piece to firstname.lastname@example.org. I can't promise to post every piece, but I will absolutely try.
So that's about it! Let me know what you think, and please please PLEASE submit a piece if you're passionate about a project. I welcome any and all submissions, and absolutely cannot wait to see what you're working on!
