The Artist's Way is the seminal book on the subject of creativity. An international best seller, millions have found it to be an invaluable guide to living the artist's life. Still as vital today, or perhaps even more so, than it was when it was first published one decade ago, it is a powerfully provocative and inspiring work.

In a new introduction to the book, Julia Cameron reflects upon the impact of The Artist's Way and describes the work she has done during the last decade and the new insights into the creative process that she has gained. Updated and expanded, this anniversary edition reframes The Artist's Way for a new century. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Cameron's wonderful insights will help in more creative activities than my writing. I see other life areas where the same principles could be applied. Color me grateful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elyssa | 2/17/2014

    " I have read this book and attempted to follow the program more than once. The tone is a bit to "New-Agey" for me, so that overshadows the content. The "morning pages" were a huge problem for me. I tried them for a good month and just wasn't deriving enough benefit to continue. I did like the "artist's date" concept and used to do that regularly and have tried to integrate that into my current life (hard to do as a parent). I also saw the author speak in 2005 and it was anti-climactic and unimpressive for me and changed my overall impression of the book. Still, it's worth a look because it might work better for others. "

    " My friend and I did the whole Artist's Way experience this past fall and winter. It was good. I learned a lot about myself and got some momentum in areas of my life that have felt stuck for a long time. Why not give it five stars? Because it still wasn't as good as The Right to Write. That's still my favorite Julia Cameron book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 2/2/2014

    " This book is phenomenal. I highly recommend it for anyone looking to reconnect with themselves and their creativity. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Clare | 1/30/2014

    " I read this because it was so "hot" at one point... should have known better. I didn't get it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carson | 1/27/2014

    " This book is great for jump-starting and maintaining a creative life. A lot of it is super corny, but effective. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lennox Jones | 1/23/2014

    " Love it - and followed the 12 week course. Opens up the creator in you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle Blasko | 1/22/2014

    " Although the book is wonderfully written, it took me three tries before I finally made it all the way through the text/course. I found in making a full commitment to completing the course that both previous attempts ended after 6 out of 12 weeks as that appears to be a real turning point, which can be quite difficult to face. The book helps one to take a good look at one's self, one's past, one's dreams and where one might eventually go on their individual creative path. I wasn't ready for transformation when I was first introduced to this text during my undergraduate studies by my ultimate creative mentor. However, today I am thankful for the introduction and more than ready to continue on my artistic journey. I am following this read with the sequel, "Walking in this World." I highly recommend "The Artist's Way" to anybody who feels they are stuck creatively or believes they still have room to grow : ) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele Cacano | 1/17/2014

    " A book I have gone back to over and over again. A manual for reclaiming your creativity and getting back into creative shape. Great for all! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ris | 1/14/2014

    " Great, challenging activity book to jump start your creativity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blackbook | 12/30/2013

    " This book has been helpful off and on for many years. I don't often give myself the time to do morning pages anymore. Too bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clare Moss | 12/29/2013

    " I love Julia Cameron, with all her insane lovely advice. I WILL DO AN ANGRY DANCE WHEN IT SERVES MY PURPOSES, MS. CAMERON, THANK YOU. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 marit | 12/26/2013

    " I finally completed the Artist's Way!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Plunkett | 12/24/2013

    " I have only just started this one. My friend Bev encouraged me to read it. She had experienced the same misgivings that I had. Once she had started it she had nothing but good things to say. I guess the new agey -touchy feely books aren't so bad after all! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Raechelle Thomas | 12/17/2013

    " Just started this book and so far I love it. I've started one of the exercises and it's perked up my motivation already! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eden | 12/4/2013

    " I dislike this book. Overpriced and unhelpful, the colloquial style of the writing making reading it uncomfortable. Much prefer Fiction Writer's Workshop by Josip Novakovich. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 10/8/2013

    " Probably one of the most influential books of my adult life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 8/19/2013

    " This really is one of those life-changing books. The key is, to stick it out to the end. Very well worth it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maryanne Kelleher | 3/5/2013

    " Wonderful book! This book is not only for those who consider themselves artists - it is for all who wish to tap inside their creative selves. I recommend doing this with friends or a group - it is more than a book, it is a daily practice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Asebourn | 11/20/2012

    " I can read this over and over again, finding new inspiration each time. It's a book that you can never truly finish, because you can always discover a new message. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy Porter | 10/18/2012

    " Currently going through this book with a writing class I'm taking. This seems the best way to make it all the way through the program. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marydanielle | 9/20/2012

    " It still helps. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane Soroka | 9/13/2012

    " amazing journey andam in the process of re-reading it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Malenekai | 8/7/2012

    " Every Artist needs this! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisa | 7/16/2012

    " Good stuff. I listened to this on audio and will probably go purchase it in book form, as it's near impossible to go back and reference anything in the audio version due to a lack of chapters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 6/2/2012

    " Perhaps I did not follow all her exercises, but to this day (12 years later), I write my Artist Pages every morning. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 StefO | 5/10/2012

    " The idea is worth exploring but the constant analysis- stream of consciousness journal writing - is a headache and by its very nature unproductive. A good scam that's over. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 5/7/2012

    " This is a great book. It's like a 12-Step program for creativity. I've given this book away several times. I think I was 23 the first time I worked with this book. I might do it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ingrid | 4/17/2012

    " I love this book. It has changed my life on two occasions. "

    " Reading (doing?) again... very helpful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maya | 1/5/2012

    " I can't say anything critical about this book...the philosophy and spirit behind it is such a good one. I want to think of another words besides "lovely" because I've been using that a lot...but it IS lovely. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marissa | 7/25/2011

    " Absolutely instrumental in my development as an artist. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diane | 5/22/2011

    " Not as good as the title sounds. I heard her speak at a local book store and she was not very inspirational. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 5/19/2011

    " what a wonderful Creative Writing Workbook! Thank you Dana for turning me on to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Toby | 3/16/2011

    " Released me 12 years ago and I've been creating ever since. Hugely helpful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter | 3/14/2011

    " The best thing about this book is that it really makes you consider your creative process and what works for you, how to be authentic to that and build on it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Lou | 3/12/2011

    " too much good advice - too much personal discovery - probably works for some - I’ll continue to find my own way "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Derek | 3/5/2011

    " This is a powerful book; some of the advice (giving into your child self and their petty, violent demands) feels positively unspiritual - however it works in beneficial ways. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adrienne | 3/4/2011

    " This book is the best I've read on being one's best creative self. I tro to go through it every year. Brilliant! Thank you Julia. "
