Stories about what happens when bringing a creative project to life becomes your life.
- Photojournalist Nancy Borowick used photography to cope with a family tragedy. She tells the story of what happened when both of her parents were diagnosed with stage-four cancer, and how she celebrates their lives in her book, The Family Imprint.
- Kelly Rakowski, founder of the Herstory Instagram account, explains how how she's creating Personals, a new kind of dating app for the LBTQIA+ community, inspired by vintage, text-only personal ads. We also hear some of the wildly creative ads people have submitted, read by the authors themselves.
- Artist , author, and Just the Beginning's advice columnist, Adam J. Kurtz explains how writing notes to himself turned into a series of funny-but-genuine books to help others face their own creative challenges. You can ask Adam a question about a creative quandary you're facing by calling 914-381-0233. You might hear your voice in a future episode.
