A Writing Life - Day 4 (by Jimena Luja Amezcua)

Today was a very amusing day in which we learned how to create a satire, and we even each made one of our own. Some of the subjects satirized were school policies, Isis, Russian chicken imports, and gluten-free food.

Another great experience that we had today was talking to Mr. Cistulli about what he does as a writer and how he got to where he is right now. We talked to him about his experience as a poet and as a baseball writer.
Mr. Cistulli explains his journey to
becoming a professional writer.
Later in the afternoon, we had some time to work on our final pieces that we will present tomorrow and publish in our group's zine. We will also be learning about the process of workshopping this afternoon.
