Is there such a thing as “good writing”? UCSB Writing Program Director Linda Adler-Kassner on Writers’ Cafe

WRITERS CAFE LOGO-REAL-WEBIn this episode of Writers’ Cafe, Amy Boutell interviews Professor Adler-Kassner, director of the UCSB Writing Program. Some of the questions Professor Adler-Kassner considers on her website are:

  • How is “good writing” defined in different contexts?
  • Whose values are (and are not) reflected in those definitions?
  • How should people — especially students — learn to create this kind of writing?
  • How should “good writing” be assessed?
  • Who gets to decide the answers to these questions? Whose voices should matter?

This show originally aired on Tuesday, November 19, at 9:30 am. Co-hosted by Santa Barbara Poet Laureate Chryss Yost (a UCSB Writing Program alum!).
