Brandon Galm, Composition 1, Fall 2017

Course Description:

Think about your favorite game: What are its rules? Do you play it alone or with a group? How did you get really good at it? Now think about writing: What are its rules? Is it done alone or with a group? How do you get really good at it? Interestingly, the answers to most (if not all) of these questions are interchangeable between games and writing. In this course we will be looking at writing as a form of gameplay—complete with rules that we have to follow as we “play”—as a way of making us all better writers. We will also use and play various games to structure and develop our various writings throughout the semester. Hopefully, this will make learning about writing fun and can help improve our relationship to writing and to each other, through play, practice, and collaboration.
