Writing Is a Foreign Language, and a Senior Writing Workshop Is a Tower of Babel Whose Many Languages Need to Be Translated
Barany, Michelle
Community Literacy Journal, v3 n2 p115-119 2009
This paper, presented at the CCCC 2008 Senior Citizens Writing session, draws upon my experiences as a senior workshop member and past teacher. Addressing workshop leaders, it emphasizes the need for the many-faceted seniors' voices to be "translated" and tested within a workshop's microcosm before entering the outside world's macrocosm.
