The writer writes, yes, but the writer also directs, edits, publishes, champions, discovers, explores, redefines. What will it look like to be a writer when the distinctions between journalism and documentary, movie and novel, book and ebook, have largely eroded? In this project-based course, we look at the future of writing and publishing, using the most up-to-date creative platforms. Students work collaboratively to contribute to the evolution of literature, reviving lost works, translating print works into electronic forms, and creating works in platforms heretofore unknown. In addition, faculty, guest editors and workshop discussions will help students shape and define their own creative visions. External partners, in organization-specific projects, include: Restless Books, Oprah.com, New York Review Books, Academy of American Poets, Printed Matter, Ugly Duckling Presse, Archipelago Books, 2 Dollar Radio, Electric Literature, Dzanc Books, Soho Press, The Paris Review, Guernica, Medium Tweed, Verisimilitude Films, Breakthru Films, and UnionDocs
