Why? What is motivating us? What are the outcomes of our writing experiences? How to improve them? How to enable and empower young writers, students or independent artists to write more and better? What are the challenges? The activity of writing has been observed in this eBook from, mainly, two different perspectives:
writing, self and discovery, on a predominantly institutional level, and
writing as craft, with focus on text and writing practice. The division seems simple, but the variety of articles cover a wide range of subjects within the topic, creating interesting overviews – writing starts with writing instruction, progresses to discovery of the text, and this stage progresses frequently, as shown in the articles, as journeys of discovery and self-discovery.
Sérgio Luiz-Tavares' research focuses on media production, paratexts and authorship, and has been presented in the Media in Transition conference at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
