What's the Story Behind Why We Write?

Writing X Tech | The Writing Mindset

“Writing is power.” In this session, we’ll consider the production of a given work of writing as a story that we tell.  We often encourage students to think about writing as a process--how is it different to consider writing as a story rather than as a process?  We will trace the ways in which writers sometimes include the story of the writing within the writing and the ways in which we can story the writing process with students.
