In this course, students will read literature by contemporary (and not so contemporary) writers such as Virginia Woolf, George Orwell, Edna O’Brien, Angela Carter, Bell Hooks, Zadie Smith, Neil Gaiman. Students will be introduced to the craft of writing through discussions of genres, styles, techniques and themes.
This course is going to be taught online, both in synchronous and asynchronous sessions that take the form of workshops and interactive discussions. There will also be independent discussions between student and instructor. The seminar is scheduled for three hours on Tuesday between 1:30 and 4:30pm with reading, writing and talking sections.
