Writing Out Loud
Welcome to Writing Out Loud!
Writing Out Loud was written in 1997 as part of a final report for a provincially and federally funded literacy and life skills project called Chapters. The women who participated in the 3-year program felt it was important for others to learn about the benefits of writing as they had. This publication of writing ideas and reflections was written to encourage students and instructors to learn about the benefits of writing by exploring life together through writing.
After selling over 1000 copies of photocopied pages in a one-inch binder, Writing Out Loud has grown into a professionally published book, an exciting online training program and the framework for a variety of writing workshops.
In 2002, we were proud to launch More Writing Out Loud. This book is a compilation of the learning that took place during the first session of Writing Out Loud Certified Instructor training in the winter of 2000/2001. Packed full of new exercises and insights from newly trained Instructors from across Canada, this book answers many questions that instructors have about teaching and understanding the process of writing.
