What's your Story?

Writing can be a useful craft for communicating learning in the classroom. Writing can also be a creative way to discover more about oneself. We have grouped books together to help those looking for inspiration to discover themselves through writing. Your creativity may be expressed through the words of your story, the art of the leaves or book jacket, or even through creative handwriting.

In our selection we’ve included Write Where You Are: How to Use Writing to Make Sense of Your Life by Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, Spilling Open: The Art of Becoming Yourself by Sabrina Ward Harrison, and Spiritual Journaling: Writing Your Way to Independence by Julie Tallard Johnson. For those who wish to embellish their words with art, we’ve included 500 Handmade Books: Inspiring Interpretations of a Timeless Form, The Art & Craft of Hand Lettering by Annie Cicale, and The Art of Personal Imagery: Expressing Your Life through Collage by Cory Moortgat.

A few gems from these books to get creative writers started on their life stories: write from your dreams, peel away the layers, meditate, keep a travel journal, go with the flow- don’t overthink it.
