Writing and depression
I don’t often link to other blog posts, but I have just read this one on writing and depression by James Bradley, on his City of Tongues blog (it was published in Griffith Review Edition 23: Essentially Creative). I think it is fascinating reading for not only writers, but also mental health professionals and those who have suffered from mental illness. I think he uses his skills as a writer to very eloquently and clearly discuss his own experience both of depression and recovery.
Definitely worth a read.
