290A: Tps:Personal/Professional Writing
In this half-credit writing workshop, you will have a chance to develop your skills at writing essays addressed to audiences outside of DePauw. You'll try your hand at writing personal statements, for example, along with letters, scholarship application essays, research summaries, and other creative nonfiction. We'll do weekly peer review and lots of revising. On one of our two meeting days, we'll discuss essays by 20th century American writers -- essays which you're likely to find useful as models for your own writing, and informative, too, about the history of the essay in the United States.
