Hey Everyone – The course schedule is now up, and you can find it under Resources, or at this link: schedule.
Here are the assignments for week 2:
- Read Chapter 2 in Writing True
- Read Alice Walker’s “Beauty: When the Other Dancer is the Self.” (Page 169, Writing True).
- Reading Response #1 – Please read prompt under “Reading Response #1” (found in the menu under “Assignments” and “Reading Responses”). To post your response, simply click on “comments” at the bottom of the page. Due Tuesday, Jan. 21 by 5:00 PM
- Exercise #2 – You will find this under “Creative Nonfiction Exercises,” also under the “Assignments” menu. Due Thursday, Jan. 23 by 5:00 PM by email.
- I’ve posted a short piece about journaling here: Please feel free to read and comment. This is a re-post from a prior blog I wrote a couple years ago, but pertinent to your Chapter 2 reading, I think.
- Finally, it’s worth reviewing the Memoir Assignment. Hopefully this week’s exercise will get you started on it. Keep this in mind as you begin Exercise #2.Thanks for all your work in the class so far!
