“Everybody writes. Even if it’s only a shopping list. Or your name on a check. But not everyone looks at the word or words long enough to see the wonder bursting from them and become a writer. Kent Ira Groff gets us to take that long second look—take it playfully/seriously—and hang around long enough to see what happens: a poem, a novel, best of all a prayer. He wants to make writers of us all.”
—EUGENE H. PETERSON, translator of The Message, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology Vancouver, B.C.

Writing Tides is an exceptional resource for experiencing the joy of writing as a spiritual practice. Through storytelling, guiding principles, focus strategies, and exercises, Groff coaxes creativity for new and veteran writers. Whether as notes to oneself or narratives for the public, Writing Tides readies us to discover and write wonder.”
—LUTHER E. SMITH, JR., Professor of Church and Community, Candler School of Theology, Emory University
