Women Make Arkansas: Conversations with 50 Creatives

Women Make Arkansas: Conversations with 50 Creatives


8.5 x 11, standard color paperback with more than 250 images. 200 pages.

Are you ready fifty Arkansas women who will challenge the way you think about identity, entrepreneurialism, community, and what it takes to lead a creative life?

In these pages, Erin Wood shares conversations with women of diverse and dynamic pursuits who refuse to be bound by category, including the Arkansas Poet Laureate, a kombucha brewer, a fire performer, a film production designer, a hatter, a drag queen, an aspiring time traveler, the state’s first certified chocolatier, and a ceramicist who has made more than one hundred thousand blades of porcelain grass. Together, these women bravely reveal how they quiet negative voices (whether from critics’ mouths or inside their own heads), channel their intuition, and work hard as hell to bear out their visions.

As you consider your own expressive potential, let the failures, victories, and wisdom of these bold creatives open you to infinite possibilities and help you step into your own creative freedom.

Women Make Arkansas was featured at the 2019 Arkansas Literary Festival.
