Description

This course is a continuation of ENGLISH 325 and will focus on improving your vocabulary, strengthening your grammatical, mechanical, semantical, and syntactical skills, and helping you find your voice. I insist that you make the private public (ideally, to illustrate a universal truth or a general principle) in order that you establish your authority to comment on the topic of your essay, that you pen an essay which is not generic, and, most importantly, that you write with a human voice (not dead, wooden prose written by an obscurantist majoring in philosophy [mea culpa to any philosophy major reading this course description]).

Although this course is not difficult, it is perhaps the most labor-intensive course you will take. Quid pro quo be prepared to work hard for me, and, in the process, you'll learn much about writing. The reading material for this course is your peers' writing. This will be a fun, interesting, profitable, and practical course.
