University invites scholar to share writing tips
Da-Yeh University invited author Wu Sheng to share his experiences on writing literature. Wu made his speech to a general education course titled: “Literature and Grief Therapy.” The author encouraged the students to live passionately while stating that social caring provides the power to push writers.
Wu stated: “Literature has contributed something to me, and not the other way around.”
Wu said he started reading literature in junior high school, and fell in love with the world of literature, which also ignited his passion for writing. That passion has taken him on a journey for 50 years. Wu believes that every writer has to have his or her own inner world.
In recent years, Wu has turned his attention to environmental conservation. He set examples by planting numerous trees around his home. Wu said that planting plants can decrease the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. He also says that people use concrete walls to limit the growth of trees, which is sad because it prevents the trees from growing correctly. An instructor at the university stated that she would also like to invite Wu to speak to her class, so that her students can know more about the power of literature.
