Laura’s Creative Care Package
At the beginning of the pandemic, along with all of the fear and anxiety, there was also an outpouring of artistic and positive energy online. One of my favorite illustrators launched a virtual drawing program for kids called Draw Together. A writer I follow began a series of interviews with fellow authors, chatting about their writing process and the ups and downs of publishing.
Like many people, I felt paralyzed by everything that was out of my control, and I wanted to play a small role in bringing joy to people during a dark time. So I started Laura’s Creative Care Package, a daily newletter with carefully curated art, books, and music recommendations. It was a small contribution, but it felt good to share the work of people I admired, and hopefully bring a bit of joy into people’s inboxes. You can read them here.
