Author interview: Carolyn Coman

August 29th, 2011

We recently sat down with Carolyn Coman, author of Writing Stories: Ideas, Exercises, and Encouragement for Teachers and Writers of All Ages. Carolyn talks about the risks writers must take, the hard work that goes into crafting a story, and why it’s so important to make time for writing stories in the classroom.

“The idea of putting something that you care about in words, on paper, that will then be shared with others, is a scary proposition. It takes courage to do that, to let yourself be seen, to be vulnerable.”
