Good art – writing, music, poetry, painting, sculpture – has the power to change those who witness it, whether it’s for a few minutes or forever. As writers, when we go deep into characters, situations, places, times, worlds – they change us too.
I’m inviting writers and readers to contribute a guest post on this subject.
You can address this question however you like – but here are some starting points (none compulsory – just to get you thinking!):
- Your self-concept – how you see yourself
- effects on your self-discipline
- personal satisfaction with your life
- ways of looking at the world
- recognizing your strengths & weaknesses
Six hundred words or so, plus links to your sites, a brief bio and a photo if you’d like.
You could also include a few sentences on one piece of art (of any sort) that changed how you saw the world.
If you’re an artist of another sort, please feel free to answer the questions above with reference to your own discipline.
If you’re not an artist, but a reader/listener/viewer – tell us about a piece of art that changed your world – what it was, what about you changed?
E-mail submissions or questions to marianlthorpe at gmail dot com, please! (and thank you.)
