Resources for Meeting Planners: Patti's Publications


Author, Creative is a Verb, Globe Pequot Press (coming in 2010).

Following up on her successful Life is a Verb, and in the tradition of Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way, Patti Digh here presents a book that leads readers by both heart and head to acknowledge, reinforce, and use their own creative abilities. Stories and exercises are enhanced by original artwork and an inviting design. Thirty-seven related essays are organized around six overarching themes that guide readers (whether actual “artists” or not) beyond the fear of creativity to embrace their inner artist. Among the themes: “Put down your clever” (no more trying to be smart), “See the pencil” (learning to really see again.), “Throw more pots” (focusing on the process, not the outcome), and “Close the door” (finding ten minutes a day
for oneself).
