how I look at my inbox

Monolithic email

Before you get in touch…

Please note: I get so much email that it’s impossible for me to respond to most of it! (If I did, I’d have no time to actually, you know, make anything.) It’s nice to hear from readers and fans, and I read everything, but I just can’t keep up with it all. Forgive me in advance.

For review copies of Show Your Work!, contact Selina Meere at Workman Publishing.

For inquiries about speaking engagements, shoot an email to [email protected].

For rights inquiries, my literary agent is Ted Weinstein.

If you have a question about my work, pretend I’m dead or join me for office hours. (Scroll below for details.)

For snail mail: Please don’t send me unpublished manuscripts or anything that needs returned. I like getting books and other stuff in the mail, but keep in mind my review policy→

Pretend I'm dead

Pretend I’m dead!

If you have a question about my work, the best thing to do is research me as if I’ve been dead for 500 years! A good place to start is my about page — there’s a ton of information there.

Students! All the advice I have to give about getting started and getting your work out there is in my books, Steal Like An Artist and Show Your Work! I also blog a lot about my process, so try poking around in the archives.

Join me for office hours!

Every once in a while, I respond to students and advice seekers on Tumblr or in my newsletter.

(Remember: there are no stupid questions, only “You couldn’t f***ing Google that?” questions.)
