So...why not make a collage?
Amy, this is absolutely lovely. Since reading the book I've been very curious about how you did the research for it. 🙌
Love, love, love this
Amy, I love your newsletters as they are full of all the things I love (books, art, interesting and fun content, connection, and inspiration). I especially enjoyed this issue with instructions and inspiration for creating collages! Thanks for taking the time to put this together for your readers. I LOVED it!
Ah ha!! What a fantastic idea and worthy of sharing to friends who enjoy research, do crafts, or write. Thanks!
This is a great idea. I am working on a novel / PhD project and I could use this as a form of tangible motivation.
I, too, love making collages! Thank you for reminding me. I think they're fascinating!
Happy New Year Amy! I love your collages and their origin story. Collage is one of the areas I want to explore this year. In fact I got myself a pot of PVA glue earlier this week in preparation! I’ll certainly revisit this newsletter for inspiration, thank you.
What a great idea—and a fun post! Thanks.
Your collages look great. I love all the books that you have written, from Bad Bugs to Miss Kopp.
Wow, just wow. Such a non-drudge, creative, inspiring way to think about -- and then execute -- researching stuff. Off to the races!
I love everything about this! I’m a collagist myself, as well as a flash fiction writer, but hadn’t thought of using research bits as a collage inspiration. Although, I did create images to illustrate a few pieces in my forthcoming collection of flash fiction, so… not research, but related? 😅
Hope to run into you at AWP in March!
Amy this is a glorious temptation to fall back in time and putter with materials that have a personal connection. We can rearrange our life! Great writing and a visual nudge to make something
After reading all of this I am DYING to see one of your collages! Please share.
