Shows both beginning and experienced writers how to get the thinking mind to step aside so that writing becomes truly creative.



Writing Without a Parachute: The Art of Freefall shows both beginning and experienced writers how to get the thinking mind to step aside so that writing becomes truly creative - a vulnerable and open-hearted engagement with the moment. Here, for the first time, writing teacher Barbara Turner-Vesselago shares in print the method by which, for almost thirty years, she has helped hundreds of writers to publish fiction, memoir, non-fiction, and poetry worldwide. By means of five simple precepts, she leads the writer step by step into real trust in writing through the art of Freefall: invoking the courage to fall without a parachute into the words as they come. This book can be used for inspiration, as a reference, or as a sustained, twelve-month course in writing. It will help all writers to connect with their deepest intention in writing and to write with greater authority and grace.

Barbara Turner-Vesselago is the author of No News But Kindness, was a finalist for the Chapters/ Robertson Davies Book Prize and Skelton at Sixty. She was also the winner of Britian’s Short Story Radio First Chapter Competition. She has a doctorate from the University of Cambridge and has taught at universities in the UK, US, Canada, and Nigeria. She now lives in Hamilton, Ontario and teaches Freefall Writing workshops worldwide. www.freefallwriting.com.
