Join a community of creative explorers

I read tenths of magazines and newsletters to bring you the most inspiring, engaging, and thought-provoking articles and resources about creativity I can find on the Internet.

Make Stuff is the bi-weekly dose of creativity that keeps writers, musicians, artists, and other creators going!

Hi! I'm Thomas.

Creativity is the driving force in my life.

As a creativity coach and creator, I know how hard it is to put stuff out into the world.

It takes courage, knowledge, perseverance, etc.

It also takes a community and that's why I started Make Stuff.

Whether you are a maker, an artist, or just curious about creativity, I think that you’ll enjoy the emails that I send twice a month.

Enjoy curated links, articles, and prompts that help you find your voice, build a resilient creative practice, and inspire you to keep going.

What I mean by stuff

In my writing, stuff is anything that you bring into this world through an act of creative courage: art, music, photography, writing, DIY electronics, ceramics, etc.

I mean it when I say courage; it can be scary, even painful.

    "Stimulating and thought provoking..."

    When I read Make Stuff, I find the inspiration to create, the push to do the inner work, and the joy of learning how another artist’s mind works.

    "Influences that are broad and forward thinking..."

    You bring things to my inbox that I likely would not come across otherwise. Even when I try and peek into odd corners of Twitter. I enjoy the friendly feel. It's not preachy, and it encourages me.

    Make Stuff has a chill reading vibe; it introduces me to many interesting articles and tidbits I wouldn't have otherwise known about! It's affirming: making stuff is a good thing.

    "Indiscriminatory"

    Any and all creative mediums are game for discussion, analysis, reference. It's a voraciously hungry approach to good content (in the best of ways.)
