It’s never too early to think about beefing up your writing portfolio. In our Seminars, “Fearless Writing Workshops,” we encourage students to keep a journal, and to keep their eyes peeled for interesting and compelling topics. Delicious and demanding topics are honed from reading The New York Times, The New Yorker, Atlantic Magazine, National Geographic, to name just a few.
Need mechanical help with writing?
Here are some other masters who may just help give you the Writing Bug:
Zen in the Art of Writing: Essays on Creativity, by Ray Bradbury;
Handling the Truth: On the Writing of Memoir, by Beth Kephart
The Forest for the Trees: An Editor’s Advice to Writers” by Betsy Lerner.
So sharpen your pencil, get a cheap notebook, write away from your computer, and practice Zen silence, as you learn to listen to your own voice.
