A new Artist's Way program for aspiring writers, from beloved author Julia Cameron
Julia Cameron has been teaching the world about creativity since her seminal book The Artist’s Way first broke open the conversation around art. Now in Write for Life she returns to one of the subjects closest to her heart: the art and practice of writing.
Over the course of six weeks, Cameron gently guides readers step by step through the creative process, laying the groundwork and beginning where they are, learning to trust their process, pushing through resistance and perfectionism, and finally celebrating their accomplishments.
With the learned experience of a lifetime of writing, Cameron gives readers practical tools to start, pursue, and finish their writing project—whether it’s a novel, song, screenplay, or any other form of writing. She dives into both the logistics of creativity—creating a writing space, finding snippets of time in a busy life—as well as the emotional and intellectual elements—coming to terms with perfectionism and confronting anxiety on the page.
Write for Life is an essential read for every aspiring writer and anyone looking for the next step after The Artist's Way.
Hailed by the New York Times as "The Queen of Change," Julia Cameron is credited with starting a movement in 1992 that has brought creativity into the mainstream conversation. She is the best-selling author of more than forty books, fiction and nonfiction; a poet, songwriter, filmaker and playwright. Commonly referred to as "The Godmother" of creativity, her tools are based in practice, not theory. The Artist's Way has been translated into forty languages and sold over five million copies to date.
