Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Susan Zimmermann writes with the authenticity of someone who has experienced the dark night of the soul, and the wisdom of someone who has found her way back. Her book is that rare thing, a beautifully written guidebook, both useful and lyrical, pragmatic and poetic. It offers readers a chance to lose themselves in the work of a gifted writer while finding themselves through the gift of writing itself. -Martha Beck, author of Expecting Adam and Finding Your Own North Star

Writing to Heal the Soul is an intelligent, beautifully written, and moving book, a guide for anyone who has experienced loss, failure, or tragedy. Zimmermann leads us on a journey that is deeply fulfilling and full of joy.-James W. Pennebaker, Ph.D., author of Opening Up: The Healing Power of Expressing Emotions

Zimmermann weaves together moving stories, practical writing exercises, and wisdom into a seamless guide to thriving in the face of crisis. She teaches us how to use writing as a healing balm.-Dan Shapiro, Ph.D., author of Mom's Marijuana

From the Trade Paperback edition.
