WR-130 Community As Classroom

3 Credits

Home to many writers, publishing houses and reading series, New York City is a major literary center. Through field trips to various literary spaces and institutions, and by attending multiple literary events, both on campus and off, this course seeks to help students to develop an awareness of ‘writing community’ in New York as a lives experience. By visiting publishing houses, festivals, literary readings and book launches students come to understand literary life in the city as dynamic, embedded ‘history’ that they themselves can partake in and contribute to, as writers, readers, activists, and curators.
