Alumna pens book offering creativity tips

Doreen Marcia Poreba, a 1980 Slippery Rock University communication graduate and creativity coach, has written "Idiot's Guide: Unlocking Your Creativity."  Available in paperback or eBook, the book provides tips for helping readers get past barriers that keep them from being creative at work and in their daily lives.  Poreba said creativity goes well beyond the arts and is one of the engines that drives business innovation and self-fulfillment.  "I have spent the last three decades in the creative field of public relations, and last year I became a certified creativity coach, which led to the writing of this book," she said.  The book is available at bookstores and online retailers such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
