The joy of writing: a liberating approach to the world


CONFERENCE IN FRENCH


The act of writing is determined by multiple factors. In the particular case of professional writing – for instance journalism – the approach is defined by the constraints of the profession.  Sometimes, poetry writing is also linked to formal and aesthetic constraints. It comes out as a more private form which arises from the depths of the author’s personality.

The inspiration, creation and poetic state are rather uncertain and intangible concepts that make us face what we like to call artistic creativity. These two types of writing share a mutual feeling of happiness that can be difficult to grasp: the joy of writing. By expressing or confiding ourselves, reporting facts, understanding, feeling etc… we are in a position of sharing, especially when the conditions of aesthetic success are brought together. The human liberation will then be achieved as a result of sharing, generosity, giving, disinhibiting, and excellence. It can be said that new vision of the world is then revealed.
