Tag Archives: life writing
Prompted by my courses at Simon Fraser University, I have been enjoying the writings of Carl Leggo, this time in Life Writing and Literary Métissage as an Ethos for Our Times, co-written with Erika Hasebe-Ludt and Cynthia M. Chambers.
These words especially resonated with me as I dig more deeply into the practice of life writing. At the beginning of this semester, I feared that I might run out of subjects to write about. Now it feels like every writing prompt spawns handfuls of more ideas. The possibilities are a widening spiral, a depthless (w)hole.
