Read full description of the books Writing Down the Bones + Wild Mind:Natalie Goldberg's classic book on the techniques, skills and art of creative writing, reissued to coincide with the publication of her new book on the subject, Thunder and Lightning. Wild Mind is for everyone who writes or wants to write. Natalie Goldberg teaches a Zen-like method that will take you straight to the source of creative power, to the mind that is 'raw, full of energy, alive and hungry'. These pages are packed with wise, practical and witty advice on: --how to find time to write --how to discover your personal style --how to make statements come alive --how to overcome writer's block Wild Mind also offers a larger vision of the writer's task: balancing daily responsibilities with a commitment to writing; knowing when to take risks as a writer and as a human being; coming to terms with failure and loss; and learning self acceptance - both in life and in art. 'Wild Mind vibrates with kindness, truth and courage. The words lift off the page. As I read, my world got bigger. Natalie Goldberg is a superb teacher' - Laura Davis, co-author of The Courage to Heal
Read information about the authorNatalie Goldberg lived in Brooklyn until she was six, when her family moved out to Farmingdale, Long Island, where her father owned the bar the Aero Tavern. From a young age, Goldberg was mad for books and reading, and especially loved Carson McCullers's The Ballad of the Sad Cafe , which she read in ninth grade. She thinks that single book led her eventually to put pen to paper when she was twenty-four years old. She received a BA in English literature from George Washington University and an MA in humanities from St. John's University.
Goldberg has painted for as long as she has written, and her paintings can be seen in Living Color: A Writer Paints Her World and Top of My Lungs: Poems and Paintings. They can also be viewed at the Ernesto Mayans Gallery on Canyon Road in Sante Fe.
A dedicated teacher, Goldberg has taught writing and literature for the last thirty-five years. She also leads national workshops and retreats, and her schedule can be accessed via her website: nataliegoldberg.com
In 2006, she completed with the filmmaker Mary Feidt a one-hour documentary, Tangled Up in Bob, about Bob Dylan's childhood on the Iron Range in Northern Minnesota. The film can be obtained on Amazon or the website tangledupinbob.com.
Goldberg has been a serious Zen practitioner since 1974 and studied with Katagiri Roshi from 1978 to 1984.
