Elizabeth Gilbert’s next book will be a nonfiction examination of the creative process. 

Gilbert’s work, titled “Big Magic,” is set to be released by Riverhead on Sept. 22. According to the publisher, “Gilbert digs deep into her own generative process to share her wisdom and unique perspective…. [S]he offers powerful insights into the mysterious nature of creativity. She invites readers to embrace curiosity and to let go of needless suffering. She discusses the attitudes, approaches, and habits that allow the most creative life possible.” 

Gilbert’s previous nonfiction works include her memoir “Eat, Pray, Love” and her 2010 book “Committed,” while her most recent work, “The Signature of All Things,” was a novel.

As noted by the Los Angeles Times, the author’s two TED talks focused on the creative process.

Gilbert wrote on her Facebook page, “It’s a book based on many of conversations about creativity that we’ve been having on this Facebook page over the last few years…. It’s basically a manifesto. It contains everything that I believe about creativity…. I’m not kidding when I say that this book would not exist without all of you who hang with me every single day on this Facebook page. It’s a book that you inspired, in other words, and I hope – in turn – that it will inspire you right back.”
