It’s the fifth anniversary of the International Association for Journal Writing.
In early October nine journal luminaries who spoke about their writing,
offering insights about journaling and writing. The speakers were:
Natalie Goldberg, Louise DeSalvo, Christina Baldwin, Mark Matousek,
Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, Sheila Bender, John Evans, Beth Jacobs, and Susan Borkin!
We also had a panel discussion who reviewed what we learned:
Journal Luminaries Speak and We Do, Too:
Converse, Consider and Connect
If you missed the live celebration, the good news is that we recorded the luminaries and the panel discussion. (And even if you were able to listen to the speakers live, you still may want those recordings: the luminaries gave such information-rich interviews, you’ll learn something each time your re-listen!)
Each of these “ivy-league” mentors have published highly acclaimed books; have led workshops and taught classes for decades; and in some way have made a significant contribution to the world of journal keeping, writing practice, or writing personal essays and memoirs.
Journal experts all will respond to the same ten questions about:
- recent epiphanies about journal writing
- their core contributions to the world of writing
- advice for new journal writers
- how they deal when being stuck in a journaling rut
- a powerful subtle detail or secret of writing that they have discovered that many people may not know
- a writing exercise to do at the end of the session
- and more!
