The Creative Entrepreneur was voted Winner, in two categories—Craft and Business, of the 2009 IBPA (Independent Book Publishers Association) Benjamin Franklin Award which recognizes excellence in publishing. This book is for the large audience of artists, crafters, and creative individuals from all walks of life who desire to make a livelihood from their creative work, or who possibly have achieved some success, but don’t know how to replicate it or move to another level of accomplishment. These crafty DIY artists are everywhere--they are holding alternative craft fairs, they advertise in the pages of Bust and ReadyMade and Craft, they are selling online by the thousands at Etsy.com, and are blogging at Typepad, LiveJournal, and Whipup.com. But many of them do not have the skills needed to take their business ideas to the next level. The Creative Entrepreneur takes readers on an inner journey of creative exploration to discover how to make their dreams of creative livelihood real, as they craft their own Artist’s Business Journal. The Artist’s Business Journal is a visual, project-oriented, step-by-step approach to business development for artists from all walks of life who are mystified and possibly frustrated by how to make a business out of their creative work.

The book is like a delicious smörgåsbord with a variety of contributions within creative industries research. David Rylander, Papers in Regional Science This book positions itself with an international approach and with a focus on entrepreneurship. My perception is that this will be read with major interest by policymakers around the world, who right now consider how to form strategies and construct policies to support their own creative industries. . . The book raises interesting aspects of creative industries in comparison to more traditional industries. . . Charlotta Mellander, International Small Business Journal This collection of papers adds some new dimensions to the current creative entrepreneurship research agenda. It highlights the valuable economic and social contribution of the sector but also encourages policymakers, educators and trainers to continue to evaluate the critical role they play in the creative enterprise development process. Culturelink . . . a delight to read. The book is novel and covers an important area of entrepreneurship that is definitely worthy of more attention. The book is useful to practitioners in the creative industries field that want to learn more about the international importance of the sector and also to academics who conduct research in the area. Vanessa Ratten, Journal of Enterprising Communities There is increasing conversation about this industry at conferences around the world. This book would be helpful in putting definitional boundaries around the topic and bringing together the latest research on the topic. It has an automatic international scope, has an interesting selection of subtopics including gender, trends, and economic contributions and is cleverly organized. Patricia G. Greene, Babson College, US The creative industries represent a vital, exciting and rapidly changing field of activity; one that is now recognised as a key growth sector in the knowledge-based economy. However, there is still a general lack of understanding of what is meant by the term creative industry , and thxe creative sector has not, to date, been the subject of concerted academic research. This book redresses the balance by providing valuable insights into the creative entrepreneurial process and platforming some of the key challenges yet to be addressed. A range of pertinent and diverse topics relating to creative entrepreneurship are dealt with, including the different quantitative and qualitative methodologies adopted by researchers in this field. In addition, the nature of creative entrepreneurship across different industry sub-sectors and in different economic and geographical contexts is examined. Illustrating the valuable economic and social contribution of the creative industries sector, Entrepreneurship in the Creative Industries aims to encourage policymakers, educators and trainers to continue to evaluate their critical role in the creative enterprise development process. Students and researchers in entrepreneurship and creative industries fields will also find the book to be an illuminating read.
