Review

This book has something most instruction completely misses: a practical set of exercises and explanations to help with the imaginative act of original composition. It will be useful for beginners, superb for writers in the middle of their training and an absolute lifesaver for pros who have lost their nerve. I shall recommend it to all my students and many of my friends. -- Mimi Thebo, Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing, Bath Spa University Here is a book that charts new territory, inviting the writer to fall with confidence into the ether of the creative self in order to write with skill and authenticity. -- Louise Green, Editor, Lapidus Journal Read this book whether you want to be a professional writer or more likely, someone - basically all of us - who needs to find and hear their own voice - and let it flow - so that your life will also flow. -- Richard Moss, Author of The Mandala of Being and Inside-Out Healing
