Level up with creative career tips - coupled with a side of inspiration

Days are getting shorter and the light is getting longer as we enjoy the last days of summer sunshine. Another epic summer in the books! Inspired by the magic that summer provides, we asked 3 of our creative friends across the state to share a poem, a song and an illustration to remind us that another season of warm weather and summer sunsets isn’t all that far away. Thank you to Megan Charles (Spokane) for your poem, recording artist Cascade Cody (Yakima) for your song, and Kacey Morrow (Bellingham) for your illustration. 

Creativity at Work:

Kacey Morrow

Inspired by the 1993 film “The Sandlot,” Kacey Morrow’s illustration is an opportunity to peer behind the iconic treehouse wall and immerse yourself in the environment and story of the film.

Megan Charles

In her original piece Burning Season, poet Megan Charles considers the wildfires of summer that are sparked by climate changes and asks what can be done, if anything, in response to such crises.
