    “I find enjoyment in art by changing the typical life of an organism. An aesthetically pleasing form that allows for functioning living organisms to reside, develop, laugh, escape, or express. The true joy of my work resides in the life that is generated from my creation. The excitement develops once it is subjected to the environment; when […]

    TreeHouse: A few months ago you started writing your novel 29 BBQs using the website JukePop, which offers authors the opportunity to publish their work online one chapter at a time, via the annual Summer Writing Project collaboration between 1888 and JukePop. JukePop writers attract readers who can offer their support and comments about the unfolding storylines, which gives authors the ability to shape and mold the stories they tell based on readers’ opinions. What made you interested in entering a project that involved a site such as JukePop? Considering the similarities, did your experience in creative writing workshops influence your decision at all? Jonelle Strickland: Good feedback is hard to find. Period. Actually, because each reader is unique–and even a single reader’s tastes can vary over a lifetime–JukePop and site likes it–Wattpad, I’ve been told, is the more famous one–help to fill in these gaps in readers’ tastes, really quite simply, by leveraging all of them, so that an author or a writer can take what she will. JukePop offers free beta readers who are able and willing to read your work without your having to cough up a small fortune that you, as an emerging writer, probably don’t [...]

    TreeHouse:  You work in a few different art mediums, including mixed media, photography, poetry, and fiction – just to name a few. Did you start out creating in just one of them and then moved over to the other genres or have you always worked in all of them? Is there one medium that you tend to focus on more than the others? Lorette Luzajic: I like to say that the whole world is my palette. Whether it’s a pack of Crayola on hand or a stack of old Popular Mechanics, I’m going to create something. I’m excited by the variety of human creativity and feed off of that. I did start out on poetry and short fiction. For the longest time I knew I would be a writer. I enjoyed making a lot of different things, but making art seriously as a career was something of a surprise. I even tried to get practical with my writing and studied journalism in university. But I got hooked on collage doing a project, and immediately saw the excitement of adding more materials to my cut and paste. As for photography, it was always an interest as a part of art history, which [...]
