Creative Orange Works: The Writers
Courtesy of the Orange County Arts Commission
It takes work to be a creative. Work to develop a creative skill, yes. But often, it also means work to financially support a passion, the thing we do outside of the work week that refuels our spirit and stretches other parts of our brain. There are of course those rare few artists whose livelihoods are also their artistic lives.
The majority, however, wear multiple hats, finding employment and helping others as teachers, tax collectors, software developers, librarians, sales associates, the list goes on. All this is to say: beware!
the artists are also Orange County employees.
