Earth Joy Writing – Creating Harmony through Journaling and Nature
"Drawing on the intuitive and integrative connection between writing and nature, Earth Joy Writing guides the writer into a deep relationship with the world and the words that surround her. Filled with respect for the shifting seasons of the earth and our creative lives, and rich with exercises and insights, this book is a gem for writers at any level." --Laraine Herring, author of Writing Begins with the Breath
"The book takes its form from the cycle of the seasons, the cycle of the year...writers see how the natural world can shape practice...Premo Steele both mothers us and teaches us to mother ourselves." -- Literary Mama
"Earth Joy Writing is more than a book about creative writing. It is a book that will help readers become more creative writers and thinkers through the connections they develop or re-establish between themselves, their family, and nature...The book is about becoming more observant, less stressed, and more focused on connecting with nature, our natural selves, and those around us...this book will help us slow down." -- Savvy Verse & Wit
