“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

–Marianne Williamson

Self-Care With Writers

The news article that changes the course of history. The film that gathers fans around the world. The policies and laws that bind a nation. When we surrender ourselves to the power of the written word we, as writers, shape lives. But what if we get in our own way? What if we can’t hear our true voice because we are stuck, fearful, and even self-destructive? How much time, how many pages have we lost because we haven’t found proper care for our creative tool?

Self-Care With Writers is an interdisciplinary project to archive and share writers’ experiences with self-care and mental health, how these issues influence their writing, and ways to improve their quality of life. There will also be interviews with experts in fields that relate to self-care in order to provide resources for our self-improvement. By providing a wide array of stories, research, and self-care alternatives, artists are encouraged to educate themselves and experiment with their self-care practice based on what resonates with them.

In order to write more, write well, and write to heal this world, let’s begin by healing ourselves.

  1. Glad to find your blog!

    I’m a fellow HuffPost blogger living with postpartum bipolar disorder. I have been a freelance writer for twenty years, interviewing luminaries such as Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison, SARK and Anthony Bourdain, and my book “Birth of a New Brain – Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder” will be published by Post Hill Press next year.

    I would love to spread the word about your blog on my personal blog. 🙂

    all my best,


      1. I’d love 💜 to be interviewed & I would be honored, to say the least! My book doesn’t come out until Fall, 2017, but I’ll be keeping in touch with you via your blog & Twitter etc!

        I promise not to forget to mention your blog & link to it. Off to write that note down on a neon Post-It! I need all the reminders I can get. 😜

        Thanks for the follows, and I hope you have a good day! :))
        your new fan,
