Write who you are. Live your metaphors.
I’m excited to share this online course with you. I believe that to become better writers we need to become better learners. This course takes you and your writing on a self-reflective journey through eight learning spirals. The course is as much about self-discovery as it is about writing.
How does metaphor work in your life? What is your relationship with your writing process? How do you develop mastery as a writer? How do you write your truth? Actively explore metaphor through writing and reflection to boost your creativity and re-invigorate your writing process.
To celebrate the anniversary of the launch of The Writing Spiral: Learning as a Writer I’ve decided to read the book on audio as a podcast.
ANTANAS SILEIKA, author of Underground and Director of Humber School for Writers:
“The Writing Spiral is an inspirational and motivational book for those involved in the practice of writing. It deals with practical matters such as how to avoid getting stuck in a writing project, how to behave in a writers’ group, and how to go about finding a safe community in which to test ideas. But it is also a philosophical book that meditates on the meaning of writing in one’s life, learning how to see, and adapting to solitude and self-awareness. This text wonders about writing, and includes pieces by other writers involved in the same experience, and I recommend it for all those who wonder about writing too and want to get even more engaged in the life of writing. It will also help spur those just starting out on this path.”
We are thrilled to share with you the talented people who will contribute to our next book, The Writing Spiral: Learning as a Writer. This is a collection of essays, memoirs, stories, poems, exercises, and writing tips that captures the spirit of learning to become a writer. For all writers.
