Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg

I believe in the transformative power of our stories and in our innate ability to write toward greater courage, resilience, and creativity. As a writer, educator, creativity consultant, coach, and former Kansas Poet Laureate, I work with people to live our truest stories. See my essays, poems, interviews & songs here, and my books here.
