5: Unschool Writing, Essays and a Few Panicky Moments!

September 25, 2014

This week I chat to my 19 year old daughter Imogen about writing. 

Imogen is in her final year of a Professional Writing and Publishing degree at university. So how did she get there? Did she learn to write by doing a structured course? What about spelling and grammar? Surely she learnt all about essay writing before she started her university degree? And how did she write before she knew anything about letters? We discuss all these questions and much more, including NaNoWriMo which is only a few weeks away. Somehow I found myself mentioning a couple of panicky moments I experienced while unschooling!

You can find the program notes, which include a list of recommended writing books, on my blog Stories of an Unschooling Family.
