We all have been impacted and shaped by literature. It is an integral part of the modern human experience. What I want you to think about this week is how literature has impacted you. What stories will always remain with you? So, your first weekly journal assignment asks you to write about a work of literature that has had a profound impact on you in some way. It could be a novel, poem, children’s book, religious text, etc. (no film or tv please). Why do you think this particular piece of literature has impacted you in the way it has? And how has it impacted you?
