Joy of Community Writing in Berkeley
April 27, 2022
Kaivallya Dasu is a senior studying Molecular Biology and Creative Writing at University of California Berkeley.
Kaivallya has been listening to stories for as long as she can remember.
She liked telling those stories, and also started to make up her own stories.
Once she could read and write, she started to write down her stories, ideas and thoughts.
It all came naturally. And she genuinely enjoyed it.
But, it was a solitary activity.
In her Creative Writing classes at Berkeley, her classmates read each other’s work and give feedback.
It is cool.
They get to learn about each other’s experiences, perspectives and approaches to writing.
Writing can be so meaningful when done and shared in a community.
