Creative Writing

Creative writing is a less direct, but often more accessible, way of exploring the Middle Way than philosophical writing. Since the best creative writing provides an enhanced understanding of the experience of authors or characters, and avoids the intrusive use of abstract theory, almost any good creative writing provides an indirect way of exploring the Middle Way.

Below are links to details of two books of creative writing available from Robert M. Ellis, plus links to other parts of the website that relate to creative writing.
