Description

What do working writers do all day? And what might your own life entail if you become one? This course is designed for you to find out.

In this course, students experiment with a wide range of qualitative and quantitative research methods to position themselves in conversations and communities they care about. During the first half of the semester, we look at ways contemporary, established writers do this throughout their careers, and in the second half of the semester, each student creates a project that employs a mixed method research design to serve a community of their choice. This course is intended for students in diverse disciplines who want to create work that supports significant change, and who want to practice giving interviews, conducting surveys, going to archives, and engaging in other research that goes beyond Google.

Course Requirements:

Two research-based projects, low-stakes experiment-based assignments, discussions and workshops.
