Child’s Play: How Creative Play Helped Unlock my Nonfiction Writing

Cleaver Magazine published my craft essay about my dollhouse project, creative play, and nonfiction. Also mentioned: Dr. Ruth, The Lonely Doll, Carl Jung, and Thumbelina.

“An unintended consequence is that play has allowed me to see in metaphor and to “play out” problematic issues in a safe space, before and during various writing stages. It’s freeing to transfer fear, anxiety, and sadness on to objects. Play creates a veil of anonymity that is a bit like writing under a pseudonym.” Read it at Cleaver.
