Class Details

The goal of this course is to teach you how to write a clear, well-argued, and interesting analytical paper, although to accomplish this we will experiment with other types of writing as well. There is no required text, but at least occasionally you will be asked to read professional work, looking for inspiration. We will spend most of our class-time examining and workshopping a series of weekly writing assignments, as well as two longer projects, one due in the middle of the semester, one at the end. Though the skills you learn will be applicable to other disciplines, and the purpose of the course is to improve all aspects of your writing, this is an English class, designed partly to prepare you for upper level courses in the English Department. This means that the subject matter will tend toward the traditional interests of the field–the interpretation of literature and other works of art.
