Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: They are able to understand the issues and then can contextualize them . . . also helps them engage with the writing, so they're not just doing the writing for the sake of writing . . . Especially if it's the neighborhood they belong to, and they feel passionately about the place, it helps with the writing process—they go out and seek more information . . . haven't taught something that is non-place-based.
