Author

  •  Do you see yourself as an author? Why do you answer as you did? What types of works have you authored (poems, essays, scripts, lyrics, etc.)? What formats of materials do authors create (blog, media, images, video)?
  • Do you consider authorship to extend beyond the written word? If so, could you provide examples? If not, why do you see authorship as only based on writing?
  • Do you have a particular audience in mind when you author something? What effect does the audience have on your decisions as an author?
  • Have you asked peers to review your work? Have you asked others with expertise in a particular area to review your work? How did you refine your work based on this feedback?
  • Have you ever authored something with others? What challenges and benefits did this process entail? How did collaborative authorship contribute to the work?
  • What media or platforms have you used as an author?
  • Why do you feel compelled to be an author?  Would you like to entertain? Inform? Convey a message? Engage in dialogue? Persuade?
  • Do you keep a diary or journal that is private to you? How is this different from authoring for an audience?
  • Is texting the same thing as writing or authoring?
  • Have you ever authored something  for social media that went beyond a clearly defined audience?
