Class description

Our course strengthens your skills in writing at the college level. We do this by writing four essays, all of which go through the draft process. Our course emphasizes refining your own individual writing skills as well as the importance of writing within a classroom and university community. Together we will think about and write about the means by which stories and narratives become obscured, recovered and retold as we read the CUSP common book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and several pieces of detective fiction.
