Primary Instructor:

Whether you’re writing a CD review for Rolling Stone, a short story for Ploughshares, or an essay for Harper’s, your goal is essentially the same; to bring the reader some news. This may be new information, a unique perspective, a distinctive style, or an innovative form. The same holds for academic writing. Instructors like to be wowed:unexpected arguments, individual interpretations, and particularly probing passages of analysis. This course will encourage you to go beyond the ordinary to approach the cutting edge in your writing and to investigate it in the work of a variety of published authors. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with your peers, focus on shaping your individual voice, and after some preliminary research and writing, write a piece to submit for publication. Throughout the semester, we will also draw on the rich array of events, readings, exhibitions, and productions the community has to offer.
