“Small but powerful—a welcome addition to many writers’ desks, and an inspiring and supportive gift.”—ForeWord


Dinty W. Moore

This isn’t your typical “how to write” book. Author Dinty W. Moore, a well-respected writing coach and teacher, thoughtfully illuminates the creative process: where writing and creativity originate, how mindfulness plays into work, how to cultivate good writing habits and grow as a person, and what it means to live a life dedicated to writing.

The Mindful Writer features bite-sized essays that will delight and inform not only writers, but also other artists, mediators and mindfulness practitioners. Built around heartening quotes from famous writers and thinkers, it is a resource that readers will turn to again and again for guidance and encouragement.

This edition includes a new introduction exploring the centrality of mindfulness in a writer’s practice and craft as well as a selection of writing prompts to get you started on writing mindfully right away.
