While tabling takes a lot of organization, and sometimes finances, there are lots of options for creators who still want to attend a convention as a creator. There's always more than one way to be productive, and sometimes, using your time for meetings, lunches, visiting tables, panels, and reviews can produce a lot of results.

Networking, networking! I can only imagine we all know that networking is important, but how can we network if we aren’t at a booth? In my personal experience, I find networking far easier when I’m not...

Creator Tips and Tricks 17: Recovering from Blocks and Burnout

By ArtCrumbsCommunity • Aug 23, 2022 5

Where does creativity come from?

Is it an innate desire to create or express yourself? Is it just a “fun” thing people do? If you do creative work for money, for an income, does it lose some of its “artistic” value?
