Amy Cutler and Aimee Bender Talk

Amy Cutler and Aimee Bender Talk Tiger Fur, Propeller, winter 2011

Tiger Mending by Amy Cutler

PROPELLER: Aimee, how do you encourage your students to trust their improvised “mistakes”?

BENDER: Yes! Anne Sexton used to talk about using typos in her poems; I think it is so freeing to realize that we just don’t always pick the best word with our carefully thought-out planning.
