There are many diverse and complicated ways in which early trauma, recent trauma, and ongoing trauma affect your ability to create, influence your subject matter choices, and make living the creative life that much more difficult.

I am currently researching the relationship between trauma and creativity and would love to hear about your experiences and learn from your insights. Do you have a sense of how trauma has played itself out in your life and in your creative life? What, if anything, has worked for you with regard to healing? What ongoing challenges do you face? I’d love to hear anything you’d like to share. Send your thoughts to me at
