Creative Thresholds 

is a blog devoted to exploring the creative potential of borders, liminal spaces of limitation and difference full of  tension and possibility. The posts are eclectic and decidedly quirky at times, celebrating the juxtaposition of  multiple genres  across  diverse fields of endeavor. New posts come out on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month (EST).

      Hi Laura,
      I hope to have most of it finished by the end of the year. I’m not exactly sure when it will come out yet. I’ll try to let CT readers know, though. 🙂

    Thank you for the follow! Please be aware that my blog is a bilingual one.
    So you may get links to some poems in English as well as to some in Italian…
    I’m trying to keep the posting balanced between the two languages. Keep up the good work!

    What a positive and supportive environment you’ve created here. I’m in the same boat. I find equal joy in writing and creating visual art. I too have a book coming out soon. I’d love to share that with you and your readers when the time comes. For now, feel free to stop by my blog, an eclectic spot to share hi and low culture and whatever else strikes my fancy.

    Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing
    to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they just don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the
    whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    Melissa…thank you for checking out what I do along the Ohio River. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read on Creative Thresholds which seems to be a cut above the usual art dialogue. Continued success in all you attempt.
