Chapter 2. Learner and writer voices
Learners as writers and the search for authorial voice
In this chapter, Jane Spiro explores a Creative Writing pedagogy in which the experienced writer and the second language learner writer meet in search of a second language writing voice. Drawing on the insights from an international group of undergraduate students at a UK university engaged in a creative writing component in their undergraduate program, Spiro suggests that the success of the project derives partly from its four-part cycle, entailing student choice of text, the articulation of reasons for their choice, applying their reading insights to writing creative texts of their own, and reflection on the process, and partly because students were participating in a writing community.
