Renowned Writer Visits Campus

Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones, Banana Rose, Long Quiet Highway, and numerous other books of creative nonfiction, poetry and fiction held an all-day writing seminar in conjunction with an Antioch class and read from her work in Antioch’s Herndon Gallery in June.

Goldberg’s Writing Down The Bones: Freeing The Writer Within broke open the world of creativity and started a revolution in the way we practice writing in this country. The book has sold over one million copies and been translated into nine languages. Since then she has written seven other books, including the novel Banana Rose.

Living Color: A Writer Paints Her World, is about painting as a second art form. Her lively watercolors are exhibited at a gallery in Taos, New Mexico. Her latest book is Top of My Lungs (Overlook Press). It contains 40 poems, 20 of her paintings in color and an essay, “How Poetry Saved My Life.”

Natalie has been practicing Zen meditation and teaching seminars in writing as a practice for the last 25 years. People from around the world attend her life-changing workshops and she has a reputation as a great teacher. The Oprah Winfrey Show sent a film crew to spend the day with Natalie for a segment on spirituality that covered her writing, teaching, painting, and walking meditation.

This visit she gave Antioch College one of her paintings—City Corner,New York City 2002—which now hangs in the President’s Office.
