Copywork to Composition

Sep 20, 2023

In this week’s podcast Julie Walker asks Andrew Pudewa how imitation applies to teaching writing along with other questions about his talk From Copywork to Composition. Imitation is the cornerstone of excellent writing. Just as no music teacher hands a new student a blank sheet of manuscript paper and expects an original composition, writing instructors should not expect students to write without a model to imitate when they are first learning.
