Book Title: Writing Without Teachers

Author: Peter Elbow

Book Description:

This is a book I wish I had written. Though it was first published in 1973, the year of my own birth, it’s a fact that this book contains the ideas in which almost every aspect of my current work is based: Everyone can write and yet we stop ourselves from writing as well as we could, either by giving in to fears about our worthiness as revealed in our writing or by believing bad advice we have been given. Peter Elbow cuts right to the heart of why writing is difficult and what we might do in the face of its difficulty.
