SoulFire and the “School of You”

School of You

Your Scribbler would like to introduce you to Carolyn Flynn of SoulFire Studios. Here’s what she has to say about her author client, Myra Travin:

SoulFire author client Myra Travin splashes into the world  with her just-released book “School of You,” a revolutionary talk at South by Southwest Interactive, and a future-shattering op-ed piece in the Austin American-Statesman.

Myra’s message is that you must become your own learning curator. “Make no mistake: Learning is survival.”

Her book is likely to spark a lively debate in the education industry, where she is known as a futurist in the field of learning design. It’s a call to action to a bill of rights for learners, to be part of a new breed: self-directed, agile and free-thinking.

“Don’t put your future in the hands of other people, organizations, dogmas or institutions,” she says. “Be the curator of your own learning. Your future depends on it.”

In her op-ed, “Saying Goodbye to the Future,” she takes it one step further: She talks about the loss of worth we feel in a globalized marketplace, and what agile learners can do about it.

Travin speaks at SXSWedu in the panel “LX Design: Because Learning Design Requires UX” from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 8, at the Austin Convention Center, Room 16AB. More information on her discussion is available at

And this is what she said about working with me (Carolyn Flynn), for which I extend eternal gratitude:

Others might say they have a vision for what you can become as an author — Carolyn knows how to make your vision real step-by-step. Relentlessly postive, she sees the best in you and has the talent, savvy and experience to get you to the next level.  I have great respect for her willingness to be a guiding light in the future. It takes a person of vision to realize the visions of others. She is that person.
