Scribes in Scotland: Wandering, Wondering, Writing
June 22 - July 7, 2018
English Language and Literature , Creative Writing , Interdisciplinary
Designed for creative writers, English majors, and humanities students, this class will engage in the art of flanerie (immersing ourselves in our surroundings to hone our critical, observational, and writing skills) to create a Scottish travelogue including both creative and expository writing. Before we set off we will read and reflect on flanerie, Scotland's influence on the world, and the work of other flaneures. In Scotland, we will write in stimulating locations from the Princes Street Gardens to the Writers' Museum in Edinburgh and Glasgow Green to Mitchell Library in Glasgow with castles, cafes, and Highland adventures included.
Completion of basic writing requirement at student's home institution.
