Found in a passage from Christopher Vogler’s The Writer’s Journey.

Thought I’d share:

“Writers should bear in mind that they are Mentors of a kind to their readers, shamans who travel to other worlds and bring backstories to heal their people. Like Mentors, they teach with their stories and give of their experience, passion, observation, and enthusiasm. Writers, like shamans and Mentors, provide metaphors by which people guide their lives–a most valuable gift and a grave responsibility for the writer.”

Wow.
