CREATE Spread the Rainbow

Struggling to keep your creativity going when your head is full of everything else that's going on? Art Director Su Dore presents our new creative feature, W&P Create, which we hope will provide our SCBWI-BI community with some inspiration and togetherness.

Your ‘new normal’… is probably very different to your ‘normal normal’!

Whilst everyone, I’m sure, is coping with their ‘new normal’ as best they can, it can still be a struggle to keep up, to stay positive and to stay creative.

Maybe you’re too busy to think of adding in anything new. 
(We understand, it’s ok.)

Maybe you’re just about keeping your head above water.  
(Hope it gets better soon.)

Maybe you’re struggling to keep up with home schooling. 
(It’s tough, we get it.)

Or maybe, you’re not sleeping, life is horrible,
you can’t bear to watch anymore news…
… AND your creative mojo has left the building.

If you resonated with that last sentence, this article is for you.

Here at Words & Pictures we’ve been trying to think of ways to help our SCBWI community. So, we’re going to give you a monthly prompt to illustrate or write about.

You can draw, paint, collage, write a poem, or a few inspiring words… and then post them on your social media feeds.

All we ask you to do is use the hashtag: #scbwitogether

We will endeavour to repost, retweet, as many as possible… and maybe showcase your work in a future Words & Pictures article.

The first prompt is:

Spread the Rainbow

Jo Byatt

Olivia Villet

Sharon Davey

This prompt is for everyone, illustrators and writers can join in. We’re in this together, and together we can get through this. Spread the love and spread the SCBWI rainbow.

Stay strong and stay safe.

No comments:

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
