[Text] Vonnegut's Letter to Students: 'Practice Any Art...Make Your Soul Grow' | Witnify “You will find that you have already been gloriously rewarded for your poem. You have experienced becoming, learned a lot more about what’s inside you, and you have made your soul grow…” When English teacher Ms. Lockwood assigned her students at Xavier High School to correspond with a well-known author on their work and request advice, Kurt Vonnegut was the only writer to respond. “Dear Xavier High School, and Ms. I thank you for your friendly letters. What I had to say to you, moreover, would not take long, to wit: Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow. Seriously! Here’s an assignment for tonight, and I hope Ms. Tear it up into teeny-weeny pieces, and discard them into widely separated trash recepticals. God bless you all! Kurt Vonnegut” 20548 Total Views 10 Views Today
