What is a “Visionary” Travel Writer? What is a “visionary” writer in general? How about a writer who considers the spiritual, cultural, social, emotional, physical, psychological, racial, and political context in which they travel and write, not to mention live and breathe. Where ever you go there you are, right? We take ourselves everywhere. So a visionary writer is one who travels first into the miraculously complex depths of their own soul, and is willing to look at and express the whole kit and kaboodle, the “full catastrophe”—dark AND light, joy AND sorrow, beauty AND terror—with humility, insight, humor, and integrity.

“The Visionary Writers MFA” is a coaching and seminar program for serious writers who want to take their writing career, and their writing lives to the next level. This program is designed to help creative writers succeed in every aspect of their lives (spirituality, finance and business, creativity, relationships, health and wellness) Please contact internationally published poet, artists, publisher, speaker, and writing coach Albert Flynn DeSilver at: asisowl@mindspring.com for a FREE coaching session, more information, and any questions you might have!

    Hello there!

    I would love to get more information about your Visionary Writers MFA program.

    I currently live in Lake Tahoe with my husband and 2 young children–and time sometimes difficult to find–but I am a big believer in the power of NOW. Why wait to start creating and living the life we really want, right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you!
