Write a Vignette

Please use this as a guide during this Creative Writing Unit; you will need to print out a copy of this rubric to include with your two vignettes.


"There’s only one story...the one story is about ourselves, about what it means to be human.  Being human takes in just about everything, since we want to know about space and time and this world and the next...so what our poets and storytellers do for us is explain us-and-the-world, or us-in-the-world."

~Thomas C. Foster, How to Read Literature Like a Professor

 

Course Goals

 

  • to foster a passion, curiosity, and commitment to learning;
  • to improve one’s ability to write, speak, read, and think critically, closely, and creatively;
  • to establish a thoughtful, respectful, and supportive community for discussion and discovery;
  • to expand one’s understanding of not just the assigned reading but of life more generally;
  • to achieve the difficult balance between being an intellectual and being an adult in progress!;big grin
  • to take risks, to ask questions, to fall down, to get up, to try again.  Keep calm and carry on!
