What's Included

(intense = Latin intensus “stretched,” intendere “stretch out and extend toward”) How do you want to stretch your writing? What do you want to improve--or even try out for the first time? Is it poetry or short story or playwriting? Is it essays on literature, arguments about issues, or research? Could it be that you’re new to the online summer reading blog? Or that you just want to strrrrrrrretch, or intensify, something specific like your descriptions or hooks, conclusions or sentence variety, or, even, your personal style? Whatever kind of writing you want to to intensify this summer, get ready for a fun, challenging workout! This boot camp takes you through the ropes (either for the first time or as a refresher) of whatever kind(s) of writing you want to intensify, with solo and group writing exercises, at-home challenges, one-on-one attention from your instructor as well as peer readers in class. Participants should, therefore, be prepared to share their writing with their peers in a shame-free zone, to receive feedback (praise and suggestions) and to celebrate accomplishments. Remember: this boot camp is all about you! Each participant should bring a notebook and writing utensil(s) of their choice. -- Location: U12 -- Instructor: Dominic Inouye, English Department Co-chair
