Writing the Sacred Journey teaches readers how to write memoir with heart and flair. It helps readers get motivated, generate material, move swiftly through drafts and gain confidence and ease in their writing. It is also an exploration of creative writing as a spiritual practice—a means of connecting one’s hope, dreams, doubt, anguish, passion and faith to the wider, external world of community. Writing the Sacred Journey explores themes that commonly appear in spiritual memoir, as well as the all-important issue of writing as craft. Readers will learn new and practical skills for every stage of the writing process. Sprinkled throughout the book, thoughtful writing exercises teach readers new techniques and avenues into the creative process.
