Find Your Story: a Reader’s Guide to Contemporary Literature


*While primarily an on-campus “face to face” course, for those who cannot make it to campus or who have course conflicts, you can complete the course online. All the classroom sessions will be recorded with our ZOOM meeting tool, and students who are at a distance may have the opportunity to actually join the course in real time, if the technology permits. Students unable to meet on campus complete additional writing exercises to make up for the missed classroom sessions.
