Other Creativity Blogs

Recently I have started to blog at Psychology Today. PT is one of the best resources available for virtually anything you’d like to know about the mind. My small corner of that site, shared with several other contributors is about creativity.

James Kaufman has a nice collection of both personal observations and scholarly reflections on a wide range of creativity related topics.

Scott Barry Kaufman (no relation to James but equally astute) highlights findings from the primary literature and other sources, with a special focus on creativity, personality, giftedness and education. I owe Scott thanks for an especially nice post on The Controlled Chaos of Creativity that featured the Geneplore model of creativity from my work with Steve Smith and Ron Finke.

Will Tumonis of Swaycraft covers a range of topics related to cognition and creativity with insightful observations and perspectives. I especially thank him for his reflections on a chapter I wrote on What’s Old About New Ideas.

Douglas Eby takes on interesting aspects of creativity including moods, emotions and states.

Art Markman and Bob Duke have a great set of podcasts from their Two Guys on Your Head radio show. It covers cognition in general, but some of their shows have direct links to creativity. Art also blogs at Harvard Business Review, cover a range of of issues with some nice observations about creativity and innovation.

The Creativity Post, co-founded by Scott Barry Kuafman (see above), Milena Z. Fisher and Elliot Samuel Paul has an extensive collection of blogs on nearly everything you could hope to know about creativity.

There are also loads of good blogs on ways to behave more creatively, such as Linda Naiman, founder of Creativity at Work, and  of course there is the remarkable listing of a multitude of blogs and other sources at CreativeBoom, whose mission is “to celebrate, inspire and support the creative community – championing both emerging and established artists, designers, photographers and makers across the world.”

I have only given a sampling here and don’t mean to slight any of the good thinkers out there who have informative creativity blogs. If you know of one I should link to, please let me know using this contact form:
