I am across an article on Lithub.com titled, “YOU DON’T KNOW ANYTHING.” AND OTHER WRITING ADVICE FROM TONI MORRISON by Emily Temple. In the article, Emily Temple wrote the following:

She also taught for many years at Princeton, and I think it’s safe to assume she knows a thing or two about nurturing young minds.

I’ve highlighted some of her wisdom below.Click on the link to read Toni Morrison's writing advice.
