The well-known wisdom phrase, “the best way to learn something is to teach it to someone else,” is easily applied to the writing craft. The best way to learn and practice storytelling structure is to spend some time giving feedback about another person’s story. How can you turn on your inner critic when it comes time to edit your own manuscript’s grammar? Spend an afternoon grading papers. M. Todd Gallowglas, Writer, Critic, and Educator, explains why he enjoys teaching writing and how it makes him a better writer. Before Gallowglas was a writer, he was a ballroom dance teacher. This shaped his understanding of teaching from a model of imparting knowledge to inspiring students. He enjoys teaching writing more than he did ballroom dancing because he’s more passionate about writing. He loves the tricks and the nuances and enjoys studying the craft of writing. Watch the clip below to learn more about why Gallowglas values teaching.
