The Writing Life: Where Lines Meet Words

Katey Schultz, whom I met at the Interlochen Writers' Retreat in June, is currently teaching creative writing there to teenagers at the summer camp. She wrote on her blog 'The Writing Life' the other day about trying out the blind contour drawing/writing without rereading activity that Patty and I use in our Journal And Sketchbook class. It worked just as well for these young writers as it did for our older class. Here is one of the pages from her students' work that Katey posted on her blog:

In this case, the student wrote on top of the blind contour drawing. Katey provides a good description of the entire process in her blog post: The Writing Life: Where Lines Meet Words
