What To Expect When You're Expecting... To Be Published

What To Expect When You're Expecting... To Be Published | About Art & Creativity | Scoop.it
This article takes a look at what writers can do to be better prepared for when they are trying to get published.
Spyros Thalassinos's insight:

The writing world is tough and for every success story there are a thousand more tales of sorrow and woe from the writers who don’t ever get published and whose manuscripts are being used as a place mat for coffee in a publishing house as you read this. It may sound harsh, but the reality is a lot harsher for the majority of writers. Breaking through and becoming a successful published author is hard work and it takes more than good writing to be one. It takes persistence, hard work, a bit of arrogance and a lot of luck. It’s important to know what to expect when you start putting yourself out into the marketplace....read more...

Western Painting - Tribal Art, Native Art from the West

Western Painting - Tribal Art, Native Art from the West | About Art & Creativity | Scoop.it
Tribal Art is the objects and artifacts made by the tribes in the rural areas, for religious reasons rather than as an example of artistry. Its numerous uses differ from tribe to tribe.
Spyros Thalassinos's insight:

Tribal Art is the objects and artifacts made by the tribes in the rural areas, for religious reasons rather than as an example of artistry. Its numerous uses differ from tribe to tribe. They could be used to decorate objects of daily use or can even be used for spiritual ceremonial functions. Very often tribes are isolated from civilisations, with no tradition of literacy. Hence, art is a good way to demonstrate and preserve tribal traditions, mythology, and history. In the Western Art scene, the most widely known Tribal Art categories are from the tribes of the remote areas of Central and South America...
