Composition I

in this writing course, we will learn how to produce ethical public discourse across written genres, drawing on creative writing, research, and academic prose.  We will create stories through a variety of processes, and will engage in the writing process to include drafts, workshops, revisions, and producing polished final pieces.  Readings will focus on how to write effectively and with integrity, and will be developed around our central work: a contemporary Native American novel that will ground us in place-based and culture-attentive articulation as we practice writing to many audiences and across multiple disciplines.
