Writing for Nonreaders in the Postprint Era

Maybe this is what I should take this summer…

Course Description

As print takes its place alongside smoke signals, cuneiform, and hollering, there has emerged a new literary age, one in which writers no longer need to feel encumbered by the paper cuts, reading, and excessive use of words traditionally associated with the writing trade. Writing for Nonreaders in the Postprint Era focuses on the creation of short-form prose that is not intended to be reproduced on pulp fibers.

Hmm, let’s see… Do I have the prereqs?

Prerequisites

Students must have completed at least two of the following.

ENG: 232WR—Advanced Tweeting: The Elements of Droll

Ooh! Looks like I just squeak in there on the merits of Lit223 and Eng301! (Too bad I failed Eng231WR for not showing up to class. ;-))
