Parris Island Writer's Workshop

One of the things you don't expect when you send your son to boot camp is that it will improve his writing skills. But young Christian has narrative voice, humor, style.

This is not the boy we knew a year ago.

Sounds like a potency-to-act is being allowed to bud - with much flowering to come. Cheers, Tom

This is particularly interesting, of course, in light of your post about boys in school. Perhaps boys should have a school experience a little more like basic training. Less understanding and more demanding. I know it would have been good for me.
