481-001 Seminar in English Studies: Writers and Writing Processes

481-001 Seminar in English Studies: Writers and Writing Processes
Instructor: Sam Looker
Description:
As English scholars, you are skilled and experienced in working with texts, but you may not have had an opportunity to consider the processes by which those texts are created. This course anchors itself in Writing Studies research on writing processes, which helps us understand how writers of everything from poems to novels to academic journal articles produce their work. We will gain theoretical grounding in this research, exploring how scholars' thinking about writing processes has evolved in recent decades into its current rich complexity. We will also apply this theoretical grounding to examples of writing practice from professional writers, our colleagues, and ourselves.
