    The study of literature helps readers to draw connections between the global and the everyday. Reading literature brings us into an awareness of ourselves and allows us to live thousands of experiences simultaneously.

    Likewise, the study of writing enhances our ability to use language to express ourselves in argument and art, to inform and raise public awareness, and to affect social change.  To write well and responsibly is to be able to use humankind’s most powerful tool—the pen—for the benefit and betterment of others.
