We’ll thus organize our work around regular workshops as well as experiments designed to produce new perspectives on what we do and how we write. Whether you are working on your thesis, beginning a new work, writing poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, or young adult fiction, we’ll design a game plan for the course, with the goal of producing at least 40 pages of new writing during our time together.

Austen inspired kitsch retain brisk commodity power. Her work is claimed as simultaneously conservative and radical and adapted and appropriated for almost every audience. We will analyze the major novels, selections from the juvenilia and unpublished letter with theoretical and critical consideration of 19th-c print culture and the 21c digital world that facilitates access to her work and the conversations it engenders.
