My friend Emily and I have been exploring ways to collaborate and exercise different creative muscles. It started years ago with a shared list of titles for poems yet to be written. They sat quietly until Wunderlist support was dropped and we moved them over to a shared Notepad. We recently have been gathering over the wire to poke holes at the notions, select an idea to explore for week, convene and review.
There’s no framework, but there is a single rule of sorts… photography, words, video, audio — any medium is up for grabs, but no matter what emerges (or doesn’t) we have to show up each week and share.
We’ve got enough explorations under our belt that we’re a good point to reflect and edit. Then we’ll make up some new rules – or not. We just have to keep showing up.
