New book to be featured at the Pennsylvania Library Association Book Exhibit

Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Nature Journaling for A Peaceful Spirit. Authored by Maryann DiEdwardo and Patricia Pasda, this book is a helpful tool for would-be writers.

“Journaling is a literary technique that ignites writers of any age. Rooted in educational theory and based upon historical memoir writing, journaling creates writers’ voices. Writing, an art, is a necessary endeavor natural for the growth of human intelligence. Nature writing experiences engage writers,” the authors share.

Complete with photographs, this book contains excerpts from the authors’ own journals as a starting point for readers to study, understand, and take inspiration from. It teaches them how to write using keen observation, self-discovery, and remembrance. The platform of nature writing can result in a series of thoughts that may become finished blogs, wikis, web pages, or technology-based nature journals.

Nature Journaling for A Peaceful Spirit will be featured at the Pennsylvania Library Association Book Exhibit in State College, PA on October 2-5, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
