Summary

Your most potent writer's tool is your own mind, Natalie Goldberg says. From there springs the detail and truth that give your written words power and authenticity. Now this best-selling author introduces you to the pleasure of creating vivid memoirs of your own with Old Friend from Far Away. Based on teachings from her highly acclaimed national workshops for writers of all levels, Goldberg explores:

How writing about the past can help free you from it
And much more
