WRCT 350
Spring 2015
Section: 01   02  
Certificates: Writing

This is the capstone course of the Writing Certificate Program. The course offers an opportunity to work closely with other students completing the certificate and to receive advice from professionals about editing and compiling work for publication.
Digital media are transforming the nature of books and magazines. In this class, we'll talk about how writers, editors, and publishers might think about the new landscapes of reading and writing. How can writers use digital media to create new forms? What's the value of materiality? How do social media affect or define what writers do? Guest speakers from the world of writing and publishing will talk about their experiences with new and old media. This seminar will be taught by writer Paul LaFarge.
