OK, I understand
If you've been reading a while you'll know all about the Creative Women's Circle. Run by graphic designer / multitasker extraordinaire Tess McCabe, the CWC is a brilliant initiative for local creative women. Tess runs bi-monthly meet ups / speaker events and edits the CWC website, which is such an excellent resource for creative women in business. Truly.
Tess's latest venture is another impressive feat - she's just penned a CWC book, entitled Conversations with Creative Women. The book is self published and documents interviews and insights from many inspiring local ladies - including me! Must admit I haven't read the final edit, but Tess asked such great questions and in all honesty it's probably the most insightful and least rambling interview I've ever given. So that's definitely one novel reason to check it out :)
The best thing about this book is that it's not just another gorgeous coffee table tome. (Not that I don't love a gorgeous picture book!). Instead Tess has focussed on sharing real wisdom learnt from experience - perfectly exemplifying the spirit of the CWC! Each interviewee offers invaluable lessons learned along their own creative journey. Amongst the many inspiring women featured are Lou Pardi of Peppermint magazine, textile designer Kristen Doran, designer / retailer Cristina Re, Pip Lincolne from Meet me at Mikes and many many more!
Conversations with Creative Women officially launches later this month - however the print run is strictly limited, so if you have your heart set on a copy, do pre-order! Pre-ordering is also incredibly important for any independent publisher, because as you can imagine, printing books requires one hell of an initial investment!
Do pop over and check it out!
