Julia Cameron is an active artist who teaches internationally. A poet, playwright, fiction writer, and essayist, she has extensive credits in film, television, and theater, and is an award-winning journalist. She is author of the best selling book on creative practice The Artist's Way, and has taught and refined her methods for nearly two decades.
The Artist's Way (review or buy) is an empowering book for aspiring and working artists. Working with the basic principle that creative expression is the natural direction of life, Ms. Julia Cameron leads the reader through a comprehensive three-month program to recover creativity. The Artist's Way links creativity to spirituality by showing how to tap into the higher power that connects human creativity and the creative energies of the universe.
In The Vein of Gold (review or buy), Julia Cameron again draws from her extensive artistic and teaching experience to steer readers toward ever-widening creative horizons. This inspiring book of learning-through-doing features teachings on the creative process and more than one hundred imaginative, involving, and energizing tasks.
Creativity teacher Julia Cameron continues her enthusiastic cheerleading in The Right to Write (review or buy). Readers are shown how to make writing a natural, intensely personal part of life. Cameron's instruction and examples include the details of her very own writing processes while creating her own bestselling books. Cameron's tools make writing a playful and practical as well as profound experience.
In Walking in This World (review or buy), Julia Cameron shows readers how to inhabit the world with a sense of wonder, a childlike inquisitiveness that each of us was born with. "Great artists are actually great amateurs," she writes in her introduction. "They have learned to wriggle out of the seriousness of rigid categorization and allow themselves to pursue the Pied Piper of delight." Full of valuable new strategies and techniques for breaking through difficult creative ground, this is the "intermediate level" of the Artist's Way program.
