Why I Write...


Leslie Marmon Silko

Novelist Leslie Marmon Silko went to law school, but she quit after reading Charles Dickens’ Bleak House, concluding that “The law has nothing to do with justice, and injustice can’t be left unchallenged. So I decided to be a writer. Writing can’t change the world overnight, but writing may have an enormous effect over time, over the long haul.”
