Summary
Why does San Francisco hold such a special place in the history of American art and literature, and in the hearts of creative people everywhere? Come discover its allure with author Eric Maisel, America's foremost creativity coach. He reveals the city's writerly haunts, local oddities, and hidden treasures, as well as practical tips for writers in any locale. In thirty-two essays, each accompanied by a charming full-color drawing by Paul Madonna, A Writer's San Francisco takes an enchanted journey through one of the world's great cities and the creative process itself. Walk San Francisco's twisting streets, climb its famous hills, explore bohemian landmarks like City Lights Bookstore, and check out lesser-known neighborhoods like Bernal Heights. Along the way, Maisel conjures San Francisco writers past and present, including Twain, Ferlinghetti, and Kerouac, and tells personal stories from his three decades as a Bay Area writer, teacher, and creativity coach. Among the many lessons he offers are what it takes to persevere as a creative soul, how to be both parent and artist, and how to spend a perfect writing day in earthquake country. Paul Madonna's lavish drawings further illuminate the ambiance and romance of the City by the Bay. Whether you're a resident San Franciscan, a visitor, an armchair traveler, or an artistic soul seeking inspiration, in these pages you'll find practical lessons to inspire you. This is an intimate journey through the legendary city and through the mysterious terrain where art blooms
