Brief excerpt from interview: Because Writing Intensive courses, as far as I am concerned, require a reflection on writing and an ability for students to see each other's writings... I try to get students... to understand the value of taking their thoughts and organizing them in a particular way, in order to create something that speaks back. When we compose... we are speaking back to our teachers, we are speaking back to our loved ones, we are speaking back to our ancestors... I want [my students] to forsake any kind of fear about writing.
