Course Pack Ideas


Writing Down the Bones Excerpts by Natalie Goldberg

(I would plan on trimming out about half of this, I think.)


On Writing Excerpts by Stephen King



A Community of Writers Excerpt by Peter Elbow and Pat Belanoff

(This one I'm not sure we would want to use, but I include it in a similar course pack for my ENG 111 students and they really gravitate toward it.)


The Faith of a Writer: Life, Craft, Art Excerpt by Joyce Carol Oates

(Again, this is one I'm not sure we would want to use, but it's the same deal as the Elbow/Belanoff piece.)

Writer's Toolbox: 5 Tools for Active Revision Instruction by Laura Harper

(A great article that Barry Lane uses in his webinars.)

This is absolutely great! I know that Bev has lessons inspired by this, so it would be lovely for the participants to be exposed to this!
