Synopsis:
“Being a professional writer means writing with the other person. It’s about putting your writing at the service of the other person’s intentions. It’s an attempt to lessen the void created for many of us by schools, institutions and the knowledge-based society. It’s about questioning the access to knowl- edge for all and giving a voice to those who other- wise wouldn’t have one. Being a professional writer means offering a form of resistance to the relentless oppression that, in our divided societies, weighs on those who do not know the proper Language and its inner workings.” (Valérie Vanhoutvinck)
