Wide Awake Minds Interviews: Self-educators and their stories

I am currently interviewing self-educators in order to tell their stories on Wide Awake Minds (www.wideawakeminds.com) and in The Wide-Awake Mind: An Invitation to Self-Education.

Please email me if you would like to be interviewed, or if you know someone whom I ought to interview. I can send you an email with writing prompts, or we can conduct the interview over the phone. Alternatively, you can click here to look at the interview questions and copy and paste the questions and your responses into an email.

I can't wait to gather your stories and share them with the world. Whatever you do to test your intellectual limits, pursue your curiosity, or explore the world of art and literature, chances are good that if you are reading this, you have some experience as a self-educator (or "autodidact"). Share it with us so that we can learn from your example and your methods.

  1. Ryan, your interest in this topic is happily reminiscent of that of a fellow who was in the first MAC I was involved with. His name is Paul Larson and he's now on the faculty of Western Michigan. The latest address I have for him is: info@paullarsonmusic.com (he's also an accomplished musician).
