Quiet Writing: A Mindful Approach To The Writing Life

The exercises and prompts on the Quiet Writing Map are designed to bring greater awareness and daring to your writing life. Through writing about ourselves, we increase our awareness of how our minds work, and so enhance our ability to create resonant fictional characters.

Use your personal stories to create vibrant and liberating fiction. Explore the sound of your writing, and describe the changes seen from a window. These creative writing prompts will inspire you to bring focus to your writing, find ways to write about anxiety and pain in fiction and memoir, and play with gibberish and gobbledygook to stop making sense!

The Writing Map is illustrated by Valero Doval, with writing prompts by Shaun Levin.
