Light the Dark

Writers on Creativity, Inspiration, and the Artistic Process

A stunning masterclass on the creative process, the craft of writing, and the art of finding inspiration from Stephen King, Junot Daz, Elizabeth Gilbert, Amy Tan, Khaled Hosseini, Roxane Gay, Neil Gaiman, and more of the most acclaimed writers at work today"e;For artists in need of a creative fix,Light the Darkis as good as a visit from the divine muse."e; -Bookpage What inspires you? That's the simple, but profound question posed to forty-six renowned authors in LIGHT THE DARK. Each writer begins with a favorite passage from a novel, a song, a poemsomething that gets them started and keeps them going with the creative work they love. From there, incredible lessons and stories of life-changing encounters with art emerge, like how sneaking books into his job as a night security guard helped Khaled Hosseini learn that nothing he creates will ever be truly finished. Or how a college reading assignment taught Junot Daz that great art can be a healing conversation, and an unexpected poet led Elizabeth Gilbert to embrace an unyielding optimism, even in the face of darkness. LIGHT THE DARK collects the best of The Atlantic's much-acclaimed "e;By Heart"e; series edited by Joe Fassler and adds brand new pieces, each one paired with a striking illustration. Here is a guide to creative living and writing in the vein of Daily Rituals, Bird by Bird,Draft No. 4, and Big Magic for anyone who wants to learn how great writers find inspirationand to find some of your own.
