This is a Substantial Writing Component Course; therefore, demonstrable progress in writing will be required. Three assignments:
Paper One: a short description of an object, person, place, thing, building, poem, or idea. Preferably in simple narrative form, one sentence following logically on the one before; may be prose, poetry, or any form deemed appropriate, as long as you communicate your ideas. NOT GRADED (credit/no-credit)
Paper Two: a creative exercise in persuasive writing. Concentrate on a very narrow focus -- again, a single object or event would be best. Decide on a narrative voice and form -- can be an ancient or modern letter to a relative, friend, client, patron, king, artist, architect ...; a newspaper or magazine article; a commission; a letter of complaint or praise; a dialogue; a public speech; a poem or mime. Argue your case persuasively and cogently.
Paper Three: a traditional research paper. Topics to be discussed. Outline, rough draft, revisions, final version.
