TED talks: writers on writing

Celeste just turned me on to TED — or Technology, Entertainment, Design; on their website, this organization offers videos of more than 200 lectures by VIPs from a wide swath of industries and arts.

Here’s a sampling of talks by writers:

Dave Eggers describes his experience working with 826 Valencia, encouraging creative people everywhere to get involved with public schools.

Amy Tan explores “where creativity is hiding.”

Isabel Allende discusses passion, creativity, and definitions of feminism.

Elizabeth Gilbert gives a lecture on “genius” and creativity.
