Drama and Writing: Complementary Meaning-making Processes
AbstractThe majority of writing approaches used in classrooms today focuses on the systematic completion of writing tasks. This article provides a different focus as it explores the inner compulsion to write while in role. It outlines the commonalities that exist between the process of writing and process drama. In a process drama writers are liberated, particularly the reticent or reluctant writer, because they are launched into another place at another time as another person.
