About the Author

Anne Elrod Whitney, PhD, is Professor of Education at Pennsylvania State University, where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in writing education, teacher education, and literacy studies and conducts research focused on how writing fits into formal and informal learning environments. Whitney also leads writing and reflection retreats for churches, campus ministries, and youth camps. She lives in State College, Pennsylvania, with her two children.


"In Inkwell, Anne Whitney unlocks writing as a spiritual practice, both positing a powerful why--because when we write to reflect, we open ourselves to spiritual learning--and showing us how through a series of reflective writing activities. This is a book for anyone, working alone or with others, inside a faith community or not." --Tanya Baker, EdD, director of national programs, National Writing Project

"Being introspective about ourselves in a kind and curious way is a valuable process. Even better, Anne Whitney demonstrates this as an everyday writing activity that will add deeper and truer meaning to our lives. This book functions as a friend on an important journey." --Leslie Webb, MEd, licensed psychologist

"I am deeply grateful for the resources in this book. The carefully fashioned prompts invite participants to see themselves and their experiences from fresh vantage points, leading to deeper insights and inspiring new possibilities." --Alicia Anderson, ELCA deacon and campus minister with Lutheran Campus Ministry at Penn State
