TO READ: Today's the Day
I'm very excited to announce to my readers that today my book, Writing through the Darkness: Easing Your Depression with Paper and Pen, went to press!

Copies will be in bookstores in June. If you find this blog interesting or useful, I think you'll find this book valuable. It's a writing guide that provides a menu of approaches -- freewriting, memoir, poetry and storytelling -- to help cope with the pain and confusion and stigma that surround depression. I also describe my own journey through bipolar depressions, and the exciting research that's been done on the writing-depression connection. Many of the wonderful members of my creative writing group for people with mood disorders that meets at Stanford University have contributed encouraging comments and samples of their work. I hope you'll check it out in June.
