Christi Krug is one of the most genuine, heartfelt people I know. She approaches the craft of writing with grace, shepherding her writing students through the creative process with optimism, understanding and compassion. Because sometimes getting words down on the page is hard. Really hard.
Luckily for those of you who don’t live close enough to be in Christi’s Wildfire Writing classes, she has collected her insights and gems, honed through years of teaching, into her new book, Burn Wild: A Writer’s Guide to Creative Breakthrough.
Burn Wild is based on Christi’s Wildfire Writing methods, and it features anecdotes about real-life writers surmounting obstacles as well as insightful prompts to ignite creativity. Each of the forty-three chapters ends with what Christi terms “sparks,” short exercises and questions that encourage readers to investigate their own journeys.
Christi’s flash essay, “The Writer as Creator,” is featured in Brave on the Page, Forest Avenue Press’ creative writing anthology.
