Writing with Your Languages [Sarah Dowling]
All Levels | Most of us have important relationships to other languages, even if we only speak English. In this course, we will explore a range of techniques for drawing upon the languages we care about. We will read short essays, stories, and poems in which other languages feature prominently, adapting the authors’ techniques for our own work. Most writing will happen in class, with some light reading and writing between meetings. At the end of the course, students will have a portfolio of new drafts and an expanded writerly toolbox. Knowledge of a language other than English is not required.
