Stella Pope Duarte: Writing Through Revelations, Visions, and Dreams
| American Book Award-winner Stella Pope Duarte presents her independently-published memoir Writing Through Revelations, Visions, and Dreams: The Memoirs of a Writer's Soul. |
Duarte takes readers into "a journey through the internal landscape of self. Using her own soul's journey as a starting point, she describes in awe-inspiring words, the language of the soul and the nebulous world of revelations, visions and dreams. In startling, measured prose, she unfolds a world of shadows, light pursuing darkness to the bitter end. Boldly, heart-in-hand, she explores the workings of the invisible world—the 'private estate.' Writing Through Revelations, Visions and Dreams is a writing memoir that is a roadmap to understanding an artist's soul, and how to use the invisible world to create 'visible work.' This memoir will bring to life the intimate 'I am' hidden within that, once recognized, raises a cry of joy."
