Claire's Corner - Call For Work

My dream is to create a space on the Internet where there is a free flow
of the arts. I don't want these pages to fall neatly into any one
persons idea of what art is, but instead be a collection of the ideas
from everyone who visits the site. While I can lay the ground work for a
project like this, I can not do it myself. For this to become reality, I
need your input. I have created a backbone for this project. Now I am
asking you, is this something you feel is a worth while project. If you
do, please give me your input in the form of works of art, articles and
commentaries to be published on this site. With your help, this can
become a truly interactive site which people will not only visit to find
out information, but to share information with the world.

I encourage ongoing works in which every month, you add a new section. I
feel these will increase the interest of Claire's Corner. This can be in
the form of an epic poem, a series of paintings, reviews of the newest
artsy movies, a educational column on learning to play the harp, so on
and so forth. Below I have created possible subjects for each of the
five main categories, as well as additional information on possible
ongoing works. Please do not limit yourself to the suggestion I make
here. If you feel that making coffee is an art form, them, by all means,
let me know. I hope you feel this is truly worth while and will help me
to make a completely interactive site in where everyone has a voice.
