Julia Cameron has had a remarkable career, which in turn has given remarkable help to others. Herself an award-winning poet, playwright, and filmmaker, she has written 30 books, ranging from her widely-praised, hard-hitting crime novel The Dark Room to her volumes of children's poems and prayers. The Artist's Way has sold more than four million copies worldwide. A writer since the age of eighteen, Cameron has published highly praised short stories, award-winning essays and hard-hitting political journalism. Her credits range from Rolling Stone to The New York Times. As a teacher, she has taught everywhere from The Smithsonian to Esalen, The New York Times to Northwestern University, where she served as writer in residence in film. As a filmmaker, she collaborated with former husband Martin Scorsese on "three films and one daughter, Domenica." Cameron explains: "Most of us have no idea of our real creative height. We are much more gifted than we know. My tools help to nurture those gifts." Hoping to inspire others to "simply start," Cameron has penned two "into-the-water" books: The Right to Write and The Sound of Paper. Gentle, but powerfully catalytic, these works serve both as introduction and reminder of the power of creative living. About the speaker, Julia Cameron She has written thirty books, ranging from her widely-praised, hard-hitting crime novel The Dark Room to her volumes of children’s poems and prayers. Despite her extensive film and theater credits, which include such diverse work as Miami Vice and the prize-winning romantic comedy God’s Will, which she both wrote and directed, Cameron is best known for her hugely successful works on creativity. Credited with founding a new human potential movement that has enabled millions to realize their creative dreams, Cameron eschews the title creativity expert, preferring instead to describe herself simply as an artist. “Artists have always mentored, I just do it on a wider scale.” “My books are not creative theory,” she explains. “They spring straight out of my own creative practice. In a sense, I am the floor sample of my own tool kit. When we are unblocked we can have remarkable and diverse adventures.” She knows of what she speaks.
