Additional Course Details: 

This course is dedicated to examining various digital creative writing projects in order to teach ourselves, as creators, how to develop and construct our own works. We'll be looking at all kinds of innovative approaches at storytelling that utilize digital means. We will be doing three main things: consuming, analyzing, and creating new stories. This means 1) critically consuming and analyzing various digital projects, utilizing what we see in order to 2) create digital projects of our own.

The assigned texts and the artifacts we will examine are meant to be jumping off points from which we can explore our own creative practices and expansive modes of storytelling. As a result of the course, students will be able to critically look at media representations and meanings in multiple cultural and identity contexts, observe technical aspects of both the visual and textual, and apply their learning by producing a final creative project.
