Getting rid of the barriers that hold you back from creativity

Alex Leviton

Long-time (35 books and counting) Lonely Planet author and writer. Former editorial director and start-up co-founder. Master of Journalism from UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. I also help writers, students and organizations find and develop their voice.

If it requires the expert use of words, I’ve done it professionally:  author and Lonely Planet writer, editorial consultant and communications strategist, writing instructor, coachdevelopmental editor, and one-time standup comic. I will help you find your voice. In fact, I’m currently writing a book about such things.
