Light the Dark: Writers on Creativity, Inspiration, and the Artistic Process Paperback – September 26, 2017
by Joe Fassler (Editor)
“A stunning masterclass on the creative process, the craft of writing, and the art of finding inspiration from Stephen King, Elizabeth Gilbert, Amy Tan, Khaled Hosseini, Roxane Gay, Neil Gaiman, and more of the most acclaimed writers at work today.”
"For artists in need of a creative fix, Light the Dark is as good as a visit from the divine muse." -Bookpage “What inspires you? That's the simple, but profound question posed to forty-six renowned authors in LIGHT THE DARK. Each writer begins with a favorite passage from a novel, a song, a poem—something that gets them started and keeps them going with the creative work they love.”
This month’s book suggestion comes from the members of the ARTIST BOOK CLUB which meets monthly in Darien, IL (See NEWS page for details about them). Each member whole-heartedly endorsed this selection as a great read for gaining inspiration and insight as an artist. Whether your artistry is through the pen or the paint brush, learning how other creatives connect with their “muse” and work to express it, is always educational.
We hope you enjoy this selection!
