TLC Podcast #5: Writing As a Way of Being Part II, with Robert Yagelski

Rachel and the writers (including guest panelist Fadeke Adegbuyi!) welcome the author of Writing as a Way of Being, Dr. Robert P. Yagelski—or Bob, as we’ve come to know him. With Bob’s seminal work on valuing the experience of writing as a guide, the discussion ranges from the classroom to the office to the heart, in search of answers to one (massive) question: How can we write ourselves awake?

About the guest: In addition to having written one of our favorite texts, which you can find an excerpt of here, Dr. Yagelski is the author of Literacy Matters: Writing and Reading the Social Self, four textbooks on writing, countless articles, and a children’s book! He teaches at SUNY Albany, where is also the Director of the Program in Writing and Critical Inquiry. He formerly directed the Capital District Writing Project, part of the National Writing Project
