Changing Lives Through Literature

In 2008 we launched a blog, Changing Lives, Changing Minds: http://cltlblog.wordpress.com.
We feature essays from professors, graduate students, judges, lawyers, and other scholars. Topics range from literature and its impact on people to alternative sentencing and issues in our justice system.
We would like to invite you to submit a 500-800 word piece to be featured on the site. Any topic that deals with literature or writing and the way in which they affect individuals (now or historically) is fair game. You might consider using one or more of the questions below as a jumping off point for an entry or bring ideas of your own to the blog.
