In this course we invite you to research and experiment with several different modes and genres of writing—from narrative to argumentative, from essay to multimodal—in order to explore your writerly interests, commitments, and voices.

Through peer review, our Minor in Writing blog, and other forms of collaboration, we will develop a shared vocabulary for cultivating a reflective practice that will provide a basis for assessing your growth as a writer in this program.

The culmination of your work in this course will be a dynamic, engaging, multi-faceted e-portfolio that includes samples of your work at every stage of the process.

Course Requirements:

Three short experiment projects, an extended project, and an electronic portfolio
