Nancy Aronie – Chasing the Truth with A Ballpoint Pen

Aired Monday, September 21, 2020 at 11:00 AM PST / 2:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM GMT / 8:00 PM CET

Writing guru and NPR commentator Nancy Slonim Aronie joins Kara Johnstad at Voice Rising for a heartfelt conversation on finding your authentic voice. Author of the bestselling book, “Writing From Your Heart: Tapping the Power of Your Inner Voice,” Nancy’s approach to creative writing is a path to healing the self. She shows us how to reverse the damaging effects done to writers in school, where red pens and disciplined grammar taught many of us to mistrust our natural ability as storytellers. Explore together how to honor your voice by developing a writing practice. Learn to write in your own rhythms. Discover how to find your personal language and write your own stories. Of course, not to be missed, how to hush those die-hard inner critics and unthaw from years trying to “be correct.” As Nancy says, “I don’t think anyone can really teach writing. What I know I can do is create a safe place for writers to write.”
