INTRODUCTION TO WRITING STUDIES
Writing Studies represents a multi-disciplinary approach to writing, one that considers writing as a social, linguistic, and rhetorical practice. Broadly conceived, it studies theories and practices of writing, and how writing functions in the world. This course explores multiple approaches to the study of writing, and will require you, ultimately, to articulate your own working definition of Writing Studies. My signature assignment for this class was an article I wrote for SLCC Open English Pressbook called, "Storytelling and Identity: Writing Yourself Into Existence".
INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL WRITING
This course considers the “public” and “organizational” work of digital writing. Specifically, the course emphasizes the principles and practices of producing, distributing, and circulating various forms of writing within textual networks. It emphasizes collaborative writing and audience-driven revision. My signature assignment for this class is my trauma recovery resource Instagram account.
