Feels Like Home: Writing Alone Together at School

  • Ahava Shira

Abstract

Writing Alone Together1 builds community in meaningful ways through creative engagement in four practices: Writing Freely, Reading Aloud, Listening Deeply, and Bearing Witness. This article shares how I have been using this innovative process to foster play, multi-literacies, and mental health in a group of intergenerational writers2 at the Gulf Islands Secondary School on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.
