“People live with pain in different ways. Some become artists. I am one of them.” This is Charles B. Snoad’s statement of purpose in Creative Type. Across this collection of essays, stories, and poems, Snoad outlines his artistic vision and compassionate worldview. He uses writing as a form of therapy to cope with trauma, depression, and anxiety. He finds hope in small victories and joy in big ideas. As we join him on his path to recovery, we find a poet-philosopher listening to his soul.
