This book is based on the simple idea that every writer has a "tool box." Instead of awls and hammers, a writer's toolbox contains words, imagination, a love of books, a sense of story, and ideas for how to make the writing live and breathe. I wrote this book to give you some practical strategies to throw into your toolbox. I hope you'll try them, because these are ideas that can make you a better writer. This book is titled Live Writing, and you may be wondering what I mean by that. Most of us have read (and written!) the opposite kind of writing-dull, drab language that sounds about as interesting as a city phone book. By "live writing" I mean the kind of writing that has a current running through it-energy, electricity, juice. When we read "live writing", the words seem to lift off the page and burrow deep inside us.

I recommend this book to all teachers who teach writing . . . the way you teach writing will change forever. - Brian Cambourne, Wollongong University If a school reflects the beliefs of its community, then its curriculum mirrors how children are valued and what kinds of learning matter most. In some schools well-intentioned writing curriculum disengages students from their world by artificially limiting their natural zest for self-expression. That's why, argues Lorraine Wilson, it's crucial that writing be structured to open students' eyes and excite them with the many possibilities that literate behaviors offer. Writing to Live specifically addresses ways to make writing curriculum relevant to students' lives while helping them develop the skills to become active, critically aware citizens. Wilson introduces a variety of contemporary, research-based strategies that bring writing instruction into the moment and engage students-strategies such as: welcoming children to think and write about "hot topics" of their choice encouraging them to bring their out-of-school literacies into the classroom inviting them to explore a broad range of genres asking students to write with purpose and answer challenging questions promoting critical literacy techniques such as considering author purpose and values, identifying stereotypes, and responding to and rewriting texts. Wilson's strategies develop children's self-confidence as writers and readers while giving them an opportunity to voice concerns, express opinions, and seek answers to questions of social justice. And to help you understand how her ideas work in practice, she provides a detailed account of two upper-elementary classrooms where the curriculum is relevant to students' lives, and activities such as writing, reading, role playing, and drawing cultivate active, critically aware citizens. Every community loves its children, but in some places, the writing curriculum doesn't nurture students in ways that help them develop into responsible decision makers. Let Writing to Live be your guide, and make a change for the better.

I was born and raised in Oakland, CA and attended Oakland Public Schools, K-12. Oakland life is a complex movie- full of depth and scenes that are high and low, ever evolving and impactful to all who witness the plot unfold again and again. For many of us, we live in Oakland but at the same time we are surviving Oakland. Our most powerful weapons are not guns or basketballs. No. Our most powerful weapon is our voice. Our leaping, twirling, voices of maniacal poise. A collective voice that over and over again rings undeniable and raw, truthful and compas-sionate. Reading through these pages I felt a sense of real pride and renewed hope. For these young people are a continuum of a great natural force in Oakland and an example to the peers who share common narratives around the world. —Ise Lyfe HBO DEF Poet Commissioner of Arts and Cultural Affairs for the City of Oakland, CA This book depicts the painful psalms of children in a Society gone astray. These are our children and they will construct the world of tomorrow. If that future world is not to our liking and alien to us, it is what we deserve unless we take action to change what is happening around us. This book ‘Write to Live’ exposes us to what some children endure as a ‘rite of life.’ —Guy Johnson, author of Standing at the Scratch Line and Echoes of a Distant Summer

Hlne Cixous: live theory provides a clear and informative introduction to one of the most important and influential European writers working today. The book opens with an overview of the key features of Cixous theory of criture fminine (feminine writing). The various manifestations of criture fminine are then explored in chapters on Cixous fictional and theatrical writing, her philosophical essays, and her intensely personal approach to literary criticism. The book concludes with a new, lively and wide-ranging interview with Hlne Cixous in which she discusses her influences and inspirations, and her thoughts on the nature of writing and the need for an ethical relationship with the world. Also offering a survey of the many English translations of Cixous work, this book is an indispensable introduction to Cixous work for students of literature, philosophy, cultural and gender studies.
