Over the last couple of weeks, we've talked with several people who are interested in submitting their artwork to Somerset. If you've been thinking about it, too, we want to encourage you to give it a try. The folks at Somerset are awesome to work with -- really helpful and encouraging.
If you're not a writer or photographer, don't worry. The have staff people to help. The most important thing is to get your artwork out there for them to see. Friend and customer Candy Martens, Artisan's Ball and frequent Somerset contributor, encouraged us to give it a try several years ago. Her advice was simple: send the actual artwork, if at all possible, and if it's your first time, go for one of their challenges/calls. These categories are listed both on-line and in the back of each issue. So don't delay! Check it out and let me know if there are questions we can answer.
We'll look forward to seeing you on the newsstand! xo
