Bonni Goldberg is an award-winning poet and writer, whose passion for the sound and sense of words has led her to commit herself to a life of writing and teaching writing. In Room to Write, she shares that passion, and shows us how daily writing practice can lead us into new worlds of the self. "Writing, like any spiritual undertaking," she observes, "has many paths, but only one direction—deeper." The book offers two hundred "studies," short writing practices that you can pick up and do whenever the spirit moves you. What I like about it is its versatility (you can dive into it at any point and come up wherever you like), its portability (it is a small-format book that will fit into your purse), and its companionable style. Goldberg is a friend who speaks to us softly, encouragingly, urging us to listen and trust our passion and never fear it. She has offered us a valuable resource. Treasure it!
