Writers as Teachers/Teachers as Writers.
Baumbach, Jonathan, Ed.
In an attempt to exorcise cliched, hollow, "voiceless prose," 11 diverse novelists, poets, playwrights, essayists, and critics who are serious teachers of writing share their insights and feelings about their roles as teachers and about writing. Some of the goals expressed in these essays about the relationship between processes of writing and the teaching of writing are to create a community in the classroom whereby students are encouraged to learn from and with each other, to put the student writer in touch with himself, and to help him revive or discover his unique "personal voice." Contributing authors are Jonathan Baumbach, Wendell Berry, Robert Creeley, George P. Elliott, George Garrett, Ivan Gold, John Hawkes, Denise Levertov, Wright Morris, Grace Paley, and L. S. Simckes.
