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 30 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.

Review quote

"I'm always telling anyone who wants to write: Do Freefall!" Helena McEwen, author of The Big House and Invisible River (Bloomsbury) "Useful for beginners, superb for writers in the middle of their training and an absolute lifesaver for pros who have lost their nerve." Mimi Thebo, Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing, Bath Spa University "Here is a book that charts new territory, inviting the writer to fall with confidence into the ether of the creative self in order to write with skill and authenticity." Louise Green, Editor, Lapidus Journal
