    Join the CWC blogging team

    join-our-blogging-team_530

    For the last few years, we’ve been fortunate to have had a wonderful array of talented, creative ladies on our team as blog columnists. Writers, designers, organisation enthusiasts, professional bloggers, social media experts… The one common thread amongst our columnists – past and present – is their passion for sharing what they know with the wider creative community and their desire to meet lots of inspiring women and creative minds in the process. Their contributions have made the CWC website what it is – a rich and robust source of information and information for women in creative businesses. I can’t thank them enough for the expertise they have shared and the time and thought they put in to their posts.

    As we head into the second half of the year, we’re on the lookout for a couple of new voices to add to the current blog contributor team, specifically to head up our ‘How to’ and ‘Studio Visit’ columns.

    If you’d like to join our team and reach out to our community as a blog columnist, email Tess with a introductory email and links to your own blog/social media for more information and to start the conversation.

    CWC member packs for the Big Hearted Business conference

    photo

    Clare Bowditch’s (sold out) Big Hearted Business conference is on this weekend, which CWC is proud to be sponsoring!

    As well as a superb door prize, here’s a little sneak peek at something every attendee will receive. The other week I sent out an open call to Full Members to provide some information about their services or products that might be of benefit to the creative entrepreneurs attending BHB. I carefully assembled each pack so attendees will have the details of and special offers from fellow creative designers, web developers, marketing professionals, and many other creative ladies whom they can then call on to help start their new ventures or help them on their journey in some way!

    I love being able to provide these kinds of opportunities to Full Members so they may promote themselves, and helping fellow creatives who are just starting to follow their creative business path is a bonus in this instance!

    So, who’s going this weekend?
