This course offers a theory about how writers learn, inviting you to explore it by actively participating in writing and reflection. The Writing Spiral demonstrates the way learning about creativity, courage, solitude, community, ambition, perseverance, curiosity, and love develop mastery—to make an expressive, inspired writer.
The Writing Spiral offers a vision that encourages us to define our writing spirals: to embrace reflection and analysis, to love learning, and to courageously write our truths and share our stories.
