"I think that the arts covers not just paintings, writing and music, but also every aspect of creativity", said Elizabeth Edwards, the founder of '1stAngel and Friends'. "I have already asked a couple of actors to join the awesome interviewees, such as the award winning author, Chris Simms, and they have been gracious enough to accept".
Elizabeth, better known on the internet as 1stAngel (hence the name for the site), is also hopeful more musicians will come and share.
"It seems that artists and photographers are excellent at putting over who they are and what they do, but it is much harder to get musicians to do the same. I am hoping that more of them will actually join in now that the site is reaching more people."
If you would like to know more about '1stAngel and Friends', or better still, get involved in the interviews, it is surprisingly painless. Each section of the site has a link to a downloadable questionnaire which you just fill out and send back to the email given.
Elizabeth adds, 'I do not accept every person that fills out a questionnaire as the standard I have here is quite high but, saying that, I have only had to refuse a couple of interviews so far and thats because they didnt follow the Interview Checklist"
She is referring to a simple checklist put in place to make sure interviewees miss nothing off before submission.
Membership to the main, front, section of the site is closed, although you can subscribe using a simple sign up process. Membership is open for the forum section instead as chat is welcomed..

About 1stAngel and Friends
1stAngel and Friends was started as a personal blog by Elizabeth Ewards in February, 2008, chatting about art and literature. Starting a couple of interviews with friends, Elizabeth realised she enjoyed what she was doing and spread the interviews to include more people from the arts.
The interviews are now an integral part of 1stangel.co.uk
Elizabeth Edwards lives in Manchester UK with her fiance and a mad German Shepherd.
