Writing Wild



“Everything we know about creating,” writes Tina Welling, “we know intuitively from the natural world.” In Writing Wild, Welling details a three-step “Spirit Walk” process for inviting nature to enliven and inspire our creativity.

“This book will help you learn how to really see and come more fully alive. I love it!”
— Penney Peirce, author of Frequency

“Before I was a full chapter into Tina Welling’s book, I found myself breathing more deeply; by chapter 2, I was outside — with the book, my notebook, and a pen….What a gentle guide and rich companion for explorations of our wilderness — both inside and out.”
— Judy Reeves, author of A Writer’s Book of Days

“Tina Welling says, ‘Writers need nature.’ I can hardly wait to introduce my writing students to this book — and encourage them to write outside, to get a word-tan, to let rain hit their journal pages, and to sit in the elements they are trying to describe — both inner and outer.”
— Christina Baldwin, author of Storycatcher

“A thought-provoking read not only for writers but for anyone who wants to deepen their connection to the world around them.”
— Kyle MillsNew York Times bestselling author of The Immortalists
