In this month’s “Wordsmith’s & Readers of Tarrant” meeting, 12/2/16, the theme of the discussion was “How Does Reading & Writing Literacy Affect the Quality of a Community?”
Most would probably think that the writing and reading competency levels of the citizens in the community wouldn’t profoundly affect the quality of the economy, the levels of crime, drug addiction rates, and even public health. But, as our discussion progressed, it becomes more and more evident that how frequently and effectively the public reads and writes plays a huge role in whether our communities thrive or crumble.
Local published author of three novels Nai Written Aspirations (Amazon – https://goo.gl/8EDqV8), local health care professional and author Allison Fowler, local author Rachel Eastman, and I, http://www.TheStormyPoet.com, break down why reading and writing is way more than just a hobby and why it’s crucial for high writing and reading literacy levels to become culture.
