1. BE ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS = April's theme for the CLASS OF 2018. We'll be showing you how to perfect your pitching, get your $$ right, and invest in You, Inc. like a boss. Sound like a plan? Enroll now, while Q2 is just getting started! (If you want to catch up on all of the Q1 material first, buy your *heavily discounted) bundle here - complete with syllabus, study list, and 3 x original worksheets.)

2. Remember when creative people mostly had good, old-fashioned day jobs? No, us neither. But perhaps the separation of art and trade made perfect sense after all. From T Magazine, a case for the Working Artist.

3. SZA and Jada Pinkett in conversation? Say no more.

4. Stuck in a rut at work? As always, bibliotherapy - new favourite word! - is the answer. The Cut has a strong round up of the 8 best books to read when you need a career breakthrough (The Working Woman's Handbook would obviously make for a solid number 9).

5. Head to your nearest print magazine emporium to pick up a copy of Solange's new Dazed spring/summer cover. Inside, she replaces the usual cover story with her own personal journal entry about the time she spent in Jamaica - where she wrote and recorded most of A Seat at the Table and recently returned to work on new musicSee the beautiful cover and read some snippets from her piece.
