Artists can use the form to publish their art, stories, workshops while simultaneously selling their arts and services in our networks.

About My Art, My Way, My Story
Mid way through my speech I must admit I thought to myself "what am I'm doing up here...nobody cares about my stupid story ...I'm just making a fool of myself". Then at the end when I said "Thank you"..I walked of the podium with my head down looking at the floor saying to myself "that was terrible". ..and then in a fraction of a second something happened I'll remember and cherish forever.. I heard clapping and cheers and when I looked up I saw them all standing clapping and cheering me on. - David S. Thompson
