We Are All Writers Now

We recently came upon a provocative piece from a professor at Oberlin that is causing quite a stir in the writing world.  Contrary to popular opinion, Trubek believes -- as her title attests -- that we are all writers now.

While the flurry of content portals may bog us down with unnecessary updates from unenlightened folk, it has also created a pressure to formulate succinct prose out of what would otherwise be unarticulated ideas.  Mindless chatter, sitcom watching, and lingering phone calls are a remnant of times past, as we now duly tap away at our keyboards with status updates, tweets, and emails.  After all, brevity is the soul of wit.
