Going a step beyond typical “how to write” books, Moore illuminates the creative process: where writing and creativity originate, how mindfulness plays into work, how to cultivate good writing habits, how to grow as a writer—and a person!—and what it means to have a life dedicated to the craft of writing. There’s not a writer alive, novice or master, who will not benefit from this book and fall in love with it. Cover to cover, this wise little book is riveting and delightful.

This book has strong course-adoption potential for writing classes at every level from high school to post-graduate.

The Mindful Writer will be a book that readers will turn to again and again as a source inspiration, guidance, and support.

Reviews and Endorsements:

"Advice books for writers are a dime a dozen but Moore provides a fresh approach with this melding of Buddhist teachings and sage career and life lessons for those who devote their lives to the written word...this is a compact book of practical and philosophical truths for both novice and veteran writers." —Publishers Weekly
"There is something fresh and undeniably appealing about these bite-sized morsels, which expand the writer's experience to a broader, human one." —The Writer Magazine

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

"The Mindful Writer is a strong pick for anyone who wants to make sure they are writing with their heart in it, very much recommended."—Midwest Book Review

"An indispensable title for anyone who wants to better understand the relationship between writing and mindfulness." —Buddhist Book Reviews

"Never be without it—as reference, as balm, as talisman; to refresh, encourage, comfort, and instruct. It's a trove of treasures. Professor Moore—insightful, funny, and true—cheers us on like the teacher and friend he is." —The Gamut
