Issue #3: Wisdom (September 01, 2016 to November 28, 2016)
From the introduction: You find a book that changes your life, giving you a perspective you didn’t have before the words on the page seeped into your soul.
You attend a friend’s gallery opening, and witness the world seeing what you’ve always known about your lovely and wise confidante.
You re-read an old journal entry or blog post you, yourself, wrote, and discover just the right words of guidance or encouragement as you embark upon a new chapter of your life.
You flip open a magazine, and catch your breath at the combination of insight, beauty, and style in a single photograph.
You need advice, so you pick up the phone and call that friend. The one who will shoot straight, but do it in a kind and loving way.

Issue #2: Nourishment (June 04, 2016 to August 31, 2016)
From our introduction: “You come to the table of creation every day, hungry for the way it flavors your daily living. Like a rich spice, it brings a unique bouquet to every dish. It adds enticing aromas and textures that provide so much more than the minimum daily requirements.
Creative living nourishes us. It buffers the winds of change, soothes the stress of daily demands, and calms the wild beating of anxious hearts.
But creativity must also BE nourished. What feeds the fires of your creative expression? How does your creative life feed your soul? And how do you nourish your creative spirit, keep it alive and well so it grows stronger each day?
Welcome to NOURISHMENT, the second issue of Modern Creative Life. We’ll be exploring all the ways creativity nourishes us, and the ways we keep our creative fires fed.

Issue #1: What’s Next? (March 8, 2016 to June 03, 2016)
From our introduction: “In many conversations and multiple emails (and letters) we talked about the kind of space we’d like in the future to celebrate other Makers. To pay homage to the choice to pursue our own creativity and forge a path forward for living a creative life.
Moreover, we asked the questions: How do we nurture our creative spark and stay afloat? How do we continue to make our art while still getting dinner on the table and keeping a roof over our heads? How do we go back to the page (or canvas) when we are feeling parched? We are all naturally curious about how people DO it. What is life is like behind closed doors those of us who must create?
For the first issue of Modern Creative Life, we chose the theme: “What’s Next?”. It’s a question I asked myself (and cherished advisers) after my book was published. It was a question I asked both out of excitement and fear. That question lies at the heart of every creative person: what IS next for my creative life? What deserves my time and attention?”
