Finding the value in “bad writing”

The Chronicle published a great little blog post today about finding the value in bad writing. I’d love to try this in some of my courses; does anyone have any experience with this?

I can see this going beyond a creative writing or journalism course. If you incorporated some writing exercises into a lit course, for example, you could show how difficult it can be to really create a thoughtful story!

Here is the article from the Chronicle:
