In this class you will learn how to write active, analytical, descriptive, structure prose through writing about a complex subject that you know a great deal about, more than anyone else in your life so far. This is not a course in learning how to write an autobiography, nor in studying the genre, but in advanced composition. It is run as a workshop, with students reading aloud from a series of essays on their upbringing. This course is designed to fulfill the upper-division written literacy requirement for non-English majors; it will fulfill the upper-division elective for English majors. Note: Course will be canceled if there are fewer than six (6) paid students enrolled as of Monday, May 15.
