The Creative Independent


The Creative Independent is a growing resource of emotional and practical guidance for artists. Our goal is to educate, inspire, and grow the community of people who create or dream of creating. The Creative Independent is ad-free and published by Kickstarter, PBC.

A selection of my writing and ideas for TCI:

🔮 Me, on the magic of patience

✨ Mark Dorf on sincerity, balance, and the internet

🌲 Ben Lotan and Tara Shi on creating a new community

🙌 Josette Melchor on creating something bigger than you

🐶 Addie Wagenknecht on finding happiness and giving zero fucks

🖥 Also: TCI’s Chrome Extension. After installing this extension, any time you open a new tab, you’ll see a quote from a TCI article. It’s a simple way to embed a bit of creativity into your daily web-browsing rituals.
