In addition, Albert is an internationally published poet, memoirist, and novelist. His writing has appeared in over 100 literary journals worldwide.

He lives in Northern California.

“Albert Flynn DeSilver is a gem, a joy to work with, and puts together amazing workshops.” —#1 New York Times bestselling author Cheryl Strayed, on Albert’s Writing as a Path to Awakening workshops 

“In this gentle, lucid, erudite and compassionate guide, Albert Flynn DeSilver offers the wisdom and warmth of a true friend who has walked the path. One who reaches out a capable hand and offers it to the new writer, to the struggling writer, and says here, here, let me show you not only how to write, but how to live.” —Dani Shapiro, author of Still Writing
