“Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew is not only an author you should read but a teacher you can trust.” 
—Barbara Brown Taylor, An Altar in the World and Leaving Church

“Whenever I have lost my way as a writer, Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew arrives as a trusted companion.
Whether I’m drafting new material, revising, or sending my work out in the world, I can always find just the right
words I need to hear in Andrew’s books. I’ve recommended her writing guides to countless students in my two decades as a creative writing professor, and always they respond with immense gratitude for her insights.”
—Brenda Miller, Tell it Slant: Creating, Refining, and Publishing Creative Nonfiction
&The Pen and the Bell: Mindful Writing in a Busy World

As a writer, I lend story to embodied contemplative experience, welcoming readers into rich engagement with our sacred source.

As a teacher, I reclaim the spiritual dimension of creative process, craft, and content, emphasize writing’s healing dimensions, and reframe writing as a spiritual practice accessible to everyone.
