English 2880-2890 offers guidance and an audience for students who wish to gain skill in expository writing -- the common term for critical, reflective, investigative, and creative nonfiction. Each seminar provides a context for writing defined by a form or use of exposition, a disciplinary area, a practice, or a topic intimately related to the written medium. Course members will read relevant published material and write and revise their own work regularly, while reviewing and responding to one another's. Since these small courses depend on members' full participation, regular attendance and submission of written work are required. Students and instructors will confer individually throughout the term. English 2880-90 meets requirements for the English minor, but not for the English major.
