Writing makes thinking visible to us and to others. In this course, we'll explore how writing and thinking are connected. We will experiment with strategies that make it easier to think in writing, as well as strategies for sharing our thinking with others. We'll do lots of low-stakes practicing, and we will study how writers in different fields present similar ideas. Students will have the opportunity to explore where they feel most at home as writers--the kinds of writing and the kinds of thinking they prefer to do, and what that means in the context of getting a liberal arts education. Writers of all experience levels are welcome.
