Our creative process


The creative process. It comes easily for some and is complicated for others.

Dr. Dan Gottlieb and his guests discuss what’s part and parcel of our creative process and what gets in the way of it.

We’ll hear from psychoanalyst Barry Panter, founder of the Creativity and Madness Conference; Rachel Simon, author of New York Times bestseller The Story of Beautiful Girl; and writer Andrew Shaffer. His book Literary Rogues: A Scandalous History of Wayward Authors came out earlier this year.
