Is it a project-based writing course? An introduction to digital journalism? A little bit of public relations and some community-based learning? At the bottom line, this innovative section of English 344 will put together and maintain an online platform for helping build a real-world community—primarily that of English majors and minors, but also potentially including anyone who loves books, the local literary culture of Ann Arbor, and the wide world of writing and literature in general. The big, collective, ongoing endeavor will be making a regularly updated website that survives beyond this semester and that becomes a part of the Department of English Language and Literature’s public face. Along the way, you’ll explore and shine some more light on the events, people, places, and projects that help make ours such a nifty stomping ground. You’ll write, edit, and in many cases, publish a variety of assignments, such as (but not limited to) biographical profiles, reflective pieces, event reporting, and book reviews. You’ll also be able to create a multimodal project, pulling together different forms of communication.
