Extra Credit

Our campus offers numerous opportunities to explore and experience the writing life. As an incentive for you to get to one of the many events, lectures, workshops, readings, conversations, I offer you the following extra credit opportunity.

Attend an event that focuses in some way on writing: a Writing Center workshop or consultation; a Sophie Kerr lecture or reading at the Literary House, a Phi Beta Kappa lecture or departmental discussion elsewhere on campus that features a writer or scholar. Post to your blog a reflection (300-500 words) on the experience: what and where the event was; what you saw and heard from the writer or workshop; what you learned and might forward into or experiment with in your own writing; your evaluation of the experience. After posting to your blog, copy the url of that post into a comment on this page. At the end of the semester, I will read and award extra credit to your participation grade for each complete reflection (up to 2 separate events).
