New Medium Publication for Storymaker
I want to build this thing out and reach more people, so the natural upshot of that is to invite others to contribute content.
Now, that can be a bit of a challenge in itself, not to mention the time required to build the site from scratch.
Although I like building sites, the thoughts of doing so just didn't turn me on this time. I've built enough of them now to have lost the thrill and novelty of it.
Medium was the perfect answer.
Medium has hundreds of thousands if not millions of readers, many of whom are already into reading and writing about art and creativity.
So building an audience and attracting contributors is an easier ask there than going solo.
Storymaker on Medium needs a little more work to get it humming, and to build a strong following, but it's a start nonetheless.

Why I Built Storymaker on Medium
I built Storymaker Medium Publication as a platform for fellow creatives and innovators to share our creations, and to share our ideas on development of creativity and art in our work.
In a world where the predominant message is to follow the default rules for success and happiness, creative people have an opportunity to show there is a better way.
People are tired of following the rules and getting nowhere. I know I am!
We need a return to small widespread communities of people making things that matter, and I believe we can join those already doing just that, and help build momentum.
Let’s show the world through our unique creations that there is better way.
Are you a creative person? Would you like to share your ideas on Storymaker?

I'm on the lookout for writers who believe in the Storymaker idea and want to spread their work further afield.
I am looking for artists and creatives who believe as I do. People who believe that there is a better way to live and work outside the standard working model.
So if you are a maker of things, unique and quirky things, as well as traditional art, music and writing then I'd like to hear from you.
Here's some of what fits the bill
I'm looking for original art and writing, opinion pieces, research and new ideas on creativity and innovation.
There are very few boundaries here. If it's different and new, or even not so different and old, it doesn't matter.
Let's be ‘avin ya!
Some of what I'm looking for;
- Articles and opinion pieces on creativity & art
- Creativity and innovation in the workplace

The rules on content are not that rigid, and it's unlikely that any contribution will be rejected. Unless it's blatant spam that is.
Share your stuff! Let others know you're there.
Get your stuff out there and help build creative momentum in the right direction.
