What People are saying about this

Michael Steinberg
"One Year to a Writing Life offers would-be and experienced writers a treasure-trove of resources in the form of exercises, prompts, and pointed examples, all of which are designed to get writing and thinking started. Tiberghien's advice, encouragement, and wisdom make this an invaluable book for writers at all stages of their writing lives."--(Michael Steinberg, founding editor of Fourth Genre: Explorations in Nonfiction and author of Still Pitching)
Larry Habegger
"Tiberghien's wisdom sparkles through her eloquence and precision in describing, illuminating, and bringing to life the key elements of great writing, and in leading us through the process of becoming great writers ourselves."--(Larry Habegger, Writing Teacher and Executive Editor, Travelers' Tales Books)
Marcia Mead L�bre
"[T]he most illuminating and exciting book I have read about the journey to a life in writing: the awakening of the senses in the realm of self-expression. Each detailed and thoughtful chapter offers inspiration as well instruction on craft to both beginning writers and more experienced writers, encouraging them to explore other forms and most importantly, to read the masters and to continue to read."--(Marcia Mead Lèbre, Director, Paris Writers Workshop)
Lee Gutkind
"Tiberghien provides a clear, affectionate, and truly inspiring window into the world of writing."--(Lee Gutkind, editor, Creative Nonfiction, author of Almost Human: Making Robots Think)
Thomas E. Kennedy
"Example by example, exercise by exercise, month by month, One Year to a Writing Life is a gift of hope to those who know they are writers but can't find a start, a gift of replenishment to those who have been at it for years but are going stale, and a gift of pleasure for those who simply wish to read and enjoy these fascinating ruminations on the process of writing."--(Thomas E. Kennedy, author of the Copenhagen Quartet; Advisory Editor, The Literary Review; International Editor, StoryQuarterly)
