The Creativity Project, edited by Colby Sharp, is a written and visual collaboration of innovative ideas using words, art, poetry and stories from various professionals about how writers and illustrators think,explore, and their ideas evolve to a completed work. Each short segmented chapter initiates the process by submitting a conceptual prompt and then another resourceful contributor submits their idea of how they work from scratch, sometimes to a finished product.
