"In a way [Unstuck] forces you to scrutinize yourself, the book is like a hard day at the therapist's office: You feel a little vulnerable, but ready to take the next step."-- San Francisco Weekly
Writers' Praise for Unstuck
"My book would not exist without Jane Anne Staw. She creatively, lovingly, and patiently guided me past my convoluted blocks. And she can do it for you. Unstuck will transform your relationship to your writing and wisely help free you into your true writing self."
--Susan G. Wooldridge, author of Poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life with Words
"Unstuck is filled with honesty, compassion, and a lyrical prose that leaves its indelible impressions on you long after you've put the book down. An overdue essential that will become every writer's companion."
--Regina Louise, author of Somebody's Someone
"I would not have written my book were it not for Jane Anne Staw. Her ability to see what I was trying to say and do, and to understand me as a writer, made it possible for me to keep writing. Unstuck offers readers the same chance to benefit from her wisdom and experience "
--Susan P. Halpern, M.S.W., author of The Etiquette of Illness: What to Say When You Can't Find the Words
"Jane Anne Staw helped me find my voice, providing texture and context to my ideas. Once 'unstuck' myself, I wrote my second book in two months, and it will be published later this year. Unstuck will help writers learn to take risks and enjoy the writing process, as well as the results."
-Guy T. Saperstein, Civil Warrior: Memoirs of a Civil Rights Attorney
"Jane Anne Staw's honest, insightful techniques demystify the sometimes paralyzing experience of being a writer, while allowing the magic and mystery of the process to flourish. Unstuck offers all of this to you."
-Rebecca Di Liberto, M.F.A.candidate, Columbia University
