The Artist’s Way is a workbook, keyword being WORK. This is one of those books your therapist is going to recommend. You’re going to get it in good faith and be super excited. Then you’re going to phase it out because it’s a lot of WORK, but you’re going to pick it back up eventually, years later, because its systems are tested for efficiency and they really are effective. Creativity is a muscle and nurturing your artistic inner child is a full-time job. In The Artist’s Way, Julia Cameron provides a system of creative rediscovery with actionable tasks that can help you if you are committed to helping yourself.


First published twenty-five years ago, The Artist's Way is the seminal book on the subject of creativity. Perhaps even more vital in today's cultural climate than when it was first published, The Artist's Way is a powerfully provocative and inspiring work. In it, Julia Cameron takes readers on an amazing twelve-week journey to discover the inextricable link between their spiritual and creative selves. This groundbreaking program includes:

- Introductions to two of Cameron's most vital tools for creative recovery--The Morning Pages and The Artist Date

- Hundreds of highly effective exercises and activities

- Guidance on starting a "Creative Cluster" of fellow artists who will support you in your creative endeavors

A revolutionary program for artistic renewal from the world's foremost authority on the creative process, The Artist's Way is a life-changing book. This 25th anniversary edition includes a new introduction from the author.
