Transformative Writing, How To Teach It
from Charlene Smith, ASJA
If we go deep within to the spaces we are scared to go, we defeat the monsters, discover our true selves and change our lives, I advised one anxious writing student. “Entertain ridiculous dreams; be informal, and work to very high standards. Extract the miracle.” Because writing is nothing less than transformative if we leave our ego at the door, our masks on the wall and approach writing without the layers of false constructs life has burdened us with.
Teaching writing is pointless if we don’t acknowledge the emotional energy great writing deserves.
