Write Away!: A Friendly Guide for Teenage Writers
Writing is not for proving that you can avoid errors or a way to print out what you're required to know but is a way of learning and knowing. With this attitude, Peter Stillman talks to students about writing in Write Away! A Friendly Guide for Teenage Writers. In it, he urges teenage writers to fill blank paper with the stuff of their world, not someone else's; to take some risks on paper; to stop thinking of themselves as student writers practicing for the real thing in the future. In this book, the are urged to write, never to practice-write. Write Away!is an encouraging and motivating book. Stillman speaks to teenagers not at them.
