MetadataShow full item record
4cr In this course students will explore, in various ways, how writing enters the world outside the classroom. The primary focus is on the students' Senior Chapbooks. They will develop the content of their Senior Chapbooks in a studio setting, learning how individual pieces can be combined to form a longer work and/or learning how a single longer piece can be readied for sharing in a more final form and to a wider audience. Students will undertake the material production of chapbooks, studying various methods of chapbook production and producing a chapbook of their writing. Finally, they will learn to present that writing in a public reading. Additional related course activities will include participating in public writing activities that extend beyond the campus, including some of the following: teaching writing in the schools or other public institutions; attending and participating in readings off-campus; sharing work in various ways with the wider community (zines, posters, graffiti, street corner readings, open mikes, etc.).
