it may concern a single writer, a selection of writers, or a general writing topic that came out of course discussions (and references the semester’s readings). Here are authors we met: Silas Zobal & Nicole Santalucia；Helen Phillips；Patricia Colleen Murphy；Jack Dricsoll；Quincy Troupe
Just to be clear, when I say the papers must relate to the course, I mean that the readings and conversations should be referenced and your own observations and insights should be included. Just giving me a biographical report on one (or more) of the writers with a synopsis of one of their books would not be course-specific. A paper like that you could write just by googling the writer. Your paper should reflect YOUR participation in the course.
Your paper should DEFINITELY engage the unique aspects of this course. I do NOT just want an expanded book report on one book you read for this semester, or worse yet a pastiche of reviews you find out online about one of the books. Your paper for THIS course should definitely reference the opportunity you had to hear the authors read and to speak with them.
