Creativity and emotional health

“Creativity should be explored as representing the highest degree of emotional health, as the expression of normal people in the act of actualizing themselves.” ~ Rollo May (1976)

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
