The Artist's Way: A Guided Journey

from 138.00

Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way, first published in 1992, is described as a “course in discovering and recovering your creative self.” Join us as we examine the suggestions and theories outlined by Cameron, and devise our own practices for enriching this thing we call “the creative life.” Each week we’ll hit the high points of several chapters, and respond to related writing prompts designed to help us plan our next steps. This is not about critique; it’s about community. Whether you’re working on your first novel, you’ve been blogging for years, or you simply like to read poetry, we can all learn from this classic—and from one another. Participants will need to acquire a copy of the book.
