Living and writing in society

Whether you plan to write a novel, a blog, or a great essay, you won’t be doing it in a vaccum. Writing is a conversation with the world around you. As a consequence, you always have to consider many factors (i.e. audience, purpose, context, and media), before you start writing. In this learning pathway, you will learn more about these factors and the impact they can have on your writing.
