One Little Poem Against the Whole World: What Writing Well (And Not Quite So Very Well) Can Teach Us

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We’re taught that we need to become good writers so we can impress our professors, make good grades, and eventually get high-paying jobs in tall buildings made mostly of glass. We’re also taught that writing well is mostly a matter of mastering certain basic skills. While it may be true that avoiding comma splices may help you in the “real world” of profs and grades and land good jobs in tall buildings made mostly of glass, there are far more serious and joyous reasons for you to care about the noise you make on the page. We’ll read a few poems to jump-start some new thinking on what writing can really teach us.
