soul food

All this talk of books reminded me that I need to go back and thoroughly explore the Soul Food Café, a portal for writers and artists. Heather Blakey, “purveyor of creative stimuli and cognitive archaeologist”, is the mastermind behind the interconnected sites that make up the Café. Her vision was to create a nurturing environment to promote the therapeutic value of daily writing.

Along with the tips, techniques, references and encouragement found on the site(s), there is a complex imaginary writing world called Lemuria (complete with GPS guidance) which may take some time to figure out. In the mean time, you can flex your writing muscles with creativity exercises and projects at the café.
