Readabout how different cultures produce different writing identities. Respond to some of Shen’s main points in a well-thought-out discussion board post. Your response can take the form of structured paragraphs (around 250 words) or it can be more creative (personal narrative, poetry, comics, music, video, collage, etc). Use whatever genre best makes your point.
Feel free to include any anecdotes that have informed what it means to be a writer for you in your culture and how this might be different for someone of a different background. Consider elements of identity like Shen mentions (nationality, political ideologies) as well as other factors (gender, generation, socioeconomic status).
