Manuela Ravecca, Why write? Writing practices in educational workshops


In professional areas writing is often considered an age-old duty: writing for superiors, families, for planning purposes. But why is it so important to keep writing?In this essay the writing world has been analysed starting from the power of speech and from the ability to give names to reality in order to reach through narration, care, self-sacrifice and the account of one’s own experience – a new knowledge, creatively generated, which tries to draw new frames of meaning where sense and nonsense can find their place.
