INFOGRAPHIC: Yoga for Writers
If you enjoy reading Electric Literature, join our mailing list! We’ll send you the best of EL each week, and you’ll be the first to know about upcoming submissions periods and virtual events.
Yoga for Writers is available as a poster in our EL store.
Paper cuts, carpal tunnel, compound hangovers, and the mind-numbing effects of a friend’s experimental poetry reading are just some of the occupational hazards that any writer must face. Now we can add “sitting” to that list of potential health risks. Yes: “butt-in-chair,” one of the hallmarks of any writing guide, could actually kill writers.
Ever considerate of the perils of the literary life, Electric Lit has created an infographic of yoga poses for writers that’ll help you avoid those hazards while you hide from distracting student emails.
