Course Description:

This is a workshop style class in the art and craft of writing book and movie reviews in the digital age, taking advantage of the new, more flexible conventions of the the internet and the resources of the world wide web. Students will watch 6 movies (possible films include Silver Linings Playbook, Argo, and Dog Day Afternoon) and read 5 books (a mix of novels and non-fiction) and write two essay-length reviews and a number of short reviews and exercises with the intention of having them published on the class blog.
