Based on the Zen philosophy that we learn more from our failures than from our successes, One Continuous Mistake teaches a refreshing new method for writing as spiritual practice. In this unique guide for writers of all levels, Gail Sher—a poet who is also a widely respected teacher of creative writing—combines the inspirational value of Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way with the spiritual focus of Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind. Here she introduces a method of discipline that applies specific Zen practices to enhance and clarify creative work. She also discusses bodily postures that support writing, how to set up the appropriate writing regimen, and how to discover one's own "learning personality." In the tradition of such classics as Writing Down the Bones and If You Want to Write, One Continuous Mistake will help beginning writers gain access to their creative capabilities while serving as a perennial reference that working writers can turn to again and again for inspiration and direction.

Poetry. Brooke Horvath's new collection of poetry, THE LECTURE ON DUST, ..."is in good part an exploration of the triump of love and companionship, but it's much more than [that]..."--Ed Sanders. "Brooke Horvath is a cosmologist of moments, one who maps the meteor showers in the night sky and also in a child's unguarded eye. Upon his maps, we may read the farewell greeting of all things real and near, imagined and far: "nothing is ever wasted/although nothing lasts." If these poems were not so beautifully made, they'd be the end of the world. THank heaven, they are"--Donald Revell.
