Transformative writing is the art of cultivating clarity, simplicity, and insight.
The primary task of a transformative writer is to explore the issues, challenges, and problems that are central to human existence and express them in a style of language that is authentic, realistic, and poetic. The essential purpose of human creativity is to inspire resilience, self-renewal, and consolation. The benefit of transformative writing is its ability to cultivate qualities that help us to become the person we were meant to be.
The transformative writer works with direct felt experience as the primary source material in the creation of imaginative spaces that help to broaden and expand what can be known, felt, and lived. (Explore: Transformative Writing)
My work as a transformative writer is organized into five interconnected themes: aging, learning, nature, vocation, and wellbeing.
Each theme is a source of creative potential, rather than a field of study or academic discipline. They offer open spaces in which to grapple with the vicissitudes and confluence of everyday life. In this sense, each theme is an adventure into uncharted terrain.
