Tips from Tom, Ben and the Other '76-ers: Launching a Writer's Workshop.
Albert, Burton, Jr.
The author argues that four activities basic to the writing process are ideation, immersion, incubation, and interaction. Ideation is defined as the process of thinking about what is to be written. Immersion is the process of building a file of materials or thoughts on a particular subject. Incubation is allowing the subconscious to supply ideas and thoughts about the topic which is to be written about. Interaction includes exchanging ideas and drafts with other writers in the classroom. It is argued that these four activities are central to a writer's workshop in the classroom. (TS)
