Welcome to Carnations and Car Crashes!
This is a micro-manifesto of artwork stemming from the existence of being in the body of this orator, KRISTINE ESSER SLENTZ, or ‘tine as my friends now call me.
You’ll be receiving in your inbox all kinds of artwork in all kinds of art forms consisting of but not limited to
writing: prose, poetry, and prose poetry
audio: readings, musings, and melody
images: photography, paintings, and drawings
Additionally, I will list both virtual and in-person upcoming events, awards, and general love from the many related artsy communities. From time to time I will also include creative prompts, announcements of free workshops/Lives, recipes, thrifty finds, and craft pointers.
This will feel like a tête-à-tête with your spirited adopted aunt who kind of yammers on and on but there is usually a nugget of sparkly peridot somewhere in there for you to take into this distressing world.
