This course emphasizes the study and practice of writing that contains a public and private story, navigating an intimate and institutional world. Student writers will serve as public chroniclers whose subjective point of view and experience attempt to provide a truth greater/deeper than what “the facts” might offer. In-class and take-home writing exercises. Additional lab hours in the form of peer workshops may be required. The course culminates in public readings of students’ short selected works.
