A writer, teacher, and editor, Bruce graduated from Columbia University and earned his MFA in writing from Vermont College (now Vermont College of Fine Arts). His stories have appeared in Cricket and Cobblestone magazines and other publications, and his blog on writing, Wordswimmer, was named one of the Web’s “Top 100 Creative Writing Blogs” by Online Education News.
He serves as a poetry judge for The Cybils: Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards and is the founder and editorial director of The Jewish Writing Project, which is listed as one of the “Top 50 Jewish Blogs” on the Web.
He started this blog (originally titled Journal Practice but re-titled Writing Yoga with Bruce Black) as a way to share his journal practice and to encourage others to keep a journal in order to deepen their understanding of life on and off the mat.
