Preparing Students to Write the Assignment

“I do not distinguish between creative and critical writing because all writing is creative. There is a pen filled with black ink. There is a blank sheet of paper. Whatever the product—poem, story, essay, letter to lover, technical report—the problem is the same: the page is empty and will have to be filled. Out of nothing, something. And all writing is critical, requiring the same shifting, selection, scrutiny and judgment of the material at hand.”

–Nancy Mairs, “On Becoming a (Woman) Writer,” Voice Lessons (1994)
