    • Many of us write because the creative process brings us alive.  But when the project is complete, we assume that the dynamic, revelatory part of writing is done and what’s left is all business-driven.  What might it take to continue playing, growing, and delighting post-completion?  How can we approach the choices and tasks of the launch with hearts open to the Spirit’s movement?  Elizabeth Jarrett Andrew will discuss the two products writers launch into the world—the book and the new self formed through writing—and how conscious choices regarding both can support our wellbeing, serve readers, tend our communities, and nourish the planet.
