  • Disruption is good for art
  • Allowing yourself to follow trails
  • Writing in multiple genres
  • Story defines the genre
  • How to help teachers create community
  • The power of partner writing
  • Questions to ask your characters
  • Nothing is more powerful than realizing you’ve been heard
