Creation begins in isolated moments and finds fulfillment in shared community experiences. Literary citizenship is a term that can refer to, according to Becky Tuch, “attending readings, subscribing to literary magazines, interviewing writers, reviewing books, reading a friend’s manuscript, blurbing books.” These are ways to support fellow writers and literacy. Explore ways these generous acts spread out into communities as support for an informed citizenship. Learn personal ways to engage in the public square of readings, social media, reviews, contests, and conferences. Learn ways the individual can keep artistic integrity and be effective in the cross-currents of public presentations of creative works.
