“Writing surrounds us: it's not something we do just in school or on the job but something that is as familiar and everyday as a pair of worn sneakers or the air we breathe." -- Andrea A. Lunsford
Lunsford is a faculty member in two great writing venues, Stanford University and the Bread Loaf School of English near Middlebury, VT.
Robert Frost also liked to spend his summers teaching at the Bread Loaf School, which gets its name by virtue of its location – on Middlebury College’s mountain campus below Bread Loaf Mountain.
Great writing and great teaching about it – in literature, creative writing, and theater – has taken place there since 1920 using great tools developed by teachers like Lunsford, who has given us all the gift of writing through her marvelous text Everyday Writer. The book, by the way, is just one of 14 this writing coach has written. Thanks to her, writing can, and does, surround us all.
