This won’t be a regular blog, but sometimes, as writer, reader, or editor, I’m struck by a question, insight, or idea I think others might like or find useful. I’ll also toss in some articles and book reviews.

Volunteer to Teach Writing

A writer's outlook on a piece a student is working on is likely to be quite different from a teacher's.  Helping a kid figure out what he or she is really trying to say and how to best say it isn't the same as teaching standard essay technique and format. Help a kid learn to write better.   You may even learn something new about your own writing.  Many schools and other organizations have such programs. Here is a blog from a PEN program I'm involved in.
