"This book about writing and the imagination is essential reading for any writer, emerging or experienced. Re-released with new material and updated advice for the 21st century writer. I first read Dear Writer as a nervy, secretive scribbler-in-journals 20 years ago. Reading this revised version I m struck again by its practical generosity on technical matters - but am also inspired by the deeper, more complex conversations I think I missed in those early readings: about courage, about the urgency and mystery and self-discovery of the writing process. Dear Writer Revisited may masquerade convincingly as a book for beginners, but its lessons are mature and wise. Charlotte Wood, The Writer s Room Interviews"
This collection of essays relates the experiences of teachers who have adopted and implemented a writing-process approach in their classrooms. In the collection, elementary, secondary, and college teachers candidly discuss their experiences--the struggles and successes, and the differences between their imagined ideal and the everyday reality. Each essay describes a personal journey, recounting how individual teachers worked within different institutional constraints and with diverse student populations to create communities of writers within their classrooms. Following an introduction, essays in the collection and their authors are, as follows: (1) "Defining the Writing Process" (Donna Barnes, Katherine Morgan, Karen Weinhold); (2) "A First-Draft Society: Self-Reflection and Slowing Down" (Robert K. Griffith); (3) "Ring the Bell and Run" (Kate Belavitch); (4) "ThiNG I Do'T, WoT To FGe'T" (Michelle Toch); (5) "Seeking Equilibrium" (Katherine Morgan); (6) "Beyond Reading and Writing: Realizing Each Child's Potential" (Tony Beaumier); (7) "The Other Stuff" (Leslie A. Brown; (8) "Picture This: Bridging the Gap between Reading and Writing with Picture Books" (Franki Sibberson); (9) "No Talking during Nuclear Attack: An Introduction to Peer Conferencing" (Karen Weinhold); (10) "There Is Never Enough Time!"

Unearthed recordings reveal the early days of the literary powerhouses who gave birth to CanLit in the 1960s. From 1969 to 1970, radio interviewer Earle Toppings recorded sixteen Canadian writers and poets who went on to become pillars of Canadian literature. These emerging icons of Canadian literature, including Margaret Laurence, Sinclair Ross, and Al Purdy, captured in Toppings’s interviews and readings, give intimate and compelling views of their developing prose and poetry, in their own words. The Earle Toppings tapes provide a distinctive and special glimpse into the workshops of emerging CanLit authors, revealing their thoughts about writing, about their successes and failures, about their place in Canada and in Canadian literature. This written version of Toppings’s recordings presents exact transcripts of the spoken interviews, complemented by brief biographies and bibliographies. The interviews were carefully compiled by the inaugural group of four Northrop Frye Research Centre Undergraduate Fellows at Victoria College. This rare portrait would not have been complete without an interview with Mr. Toppings himself, sharing his personal recollections of the authors he recorded and his own insight into their works.
