In Defense of Print: A Manifesto of Stories
Mathieu, Paula
Community Literacy Journal, v12 n1 p23-29 Aut 2017
The unreliability of preserving writing in any form seems apt: it is a physical reminder of writing's shaky, uncertain power. Sometimes words can change the world, but more often, the stark realities of an unjust world can fail to bend to even the most beautifully chosen words. In the face of long odds, the impulse to write and share words, in any form, seems idealistic, yet remarkably human. And as one human reaching out for connection to others, to readers, the author believes that even in a digital world, sometimes having writing to hold, to carry, and to pass along to someone else still matters. In this article, through stories, the author defends print.
