Get Sparked, My Round #2
SPARK art from writing: writing from art
This is my second go round in the getsparked.org website, and it can be an up and down ride for ten days. Co-creating, building together, and bringing things to life is satisfying as well.
Let me explain...
You register when they call for artist, photographers, poets and writers. Amy (she is the founder) sends you a welcome email, and explains what SPARK is all about! She then pairs you up with someone. On the day it starts, day one, your partner should have emailed you and said hello.
You send your partner an inspirational piece. Something from your arsenal of work. Published or not. I usually send something fresh, something I just wrote. When you get their work, then you have ten days to produce a 'Response' to their 'Inspirational Piece'.
Here is the 'Inspiration Piece' photograph Christina Brockett sent me, and my 'Response'.
Here is the 'Response' Christina Brockett sent me from my 'Inspiration Piece' poem.
You can view Marybeth Carshaw's 'Inspiration Piece' with my 'Response' here
Then see my 'Inspiration Piece' and Mary Carshaw's 'Response' here
You do not have to be a pro to do this. I am not. Never claimed to be. I enjoy writing. Christina Brockett is a mom, with full time responsibilities just like me. You find time to do this and then enjoy all the work everyone produces together. Its like being in a virtual artistic generated world, but on-line.
