      Non/Creative Writing
      Mondays at 7pm, Fall 2005
      Instructor: Bruna Mori

      Syllabus (subject to modification)

      NonCreative writing is a creative writing workshop. You will respond to or manipulate nonfiction texts or sources that already exist, or use formulas to extend the possibilities of your own writing. A research paper or object may literally be cut to pieces to revise it or describe its disassembly. Architecture may serve as a prompt for a fairy tale. A computer manual may be transformed into sonnets (manually, or into a screenplay through software.) Writers who employ such techniques will visit. There will be a lot to learn about accidents and chance, and their historical contexts, but also about process and authorship; storytelling and reportage; mapping and forms.
