Description

Through the simple act of writing we begin a process with prehistoric origins—one that sets us apart from every other living creature. Thomas Moore on Writing is an elegant reflection on the sacredness of words and their creation. Moore teaches that each word we write—whether it is part of a shopping list, a note to a friend, or a novel—connects us directly to the classic tradition of logos (or "word").

Once a revered practice guarded by monks in the sanctity of the scriptorium, writing continues to offer us all direct passage to the soul's innermost corridors. With an ingenious eye, Moore looks back at the writer's art and retrieves treasured practices for returning the written word to the realm of spirit and beauty. Join this acclaimed author to explore:

  • The historical, philosophical, and spiritual roots of writing
  • Insights on journal writing, letter writing, the writer's life, and more
  • Reading and writing as contemplative practices
  • Lessons from great writers including Rilke, Dickinson, and Emerson

Thomas Moore on Writing is an inspiring invitation to everyone awakened to the special pleasures of this most human of endeavors to discover the beauty and connection of this intricate art.
