I’d like to end the semester with a celebration of the work all of you have done. To do so, I’d like you to locate two passages of writing that you admire from the work of your classmates. Pick your two “moments in style” from two different writers, and keep your selections concise (no more than 100 words).
Reproduce each passage and briefly describe what you admire about them. (Be sure to note the author and assignment.) In commenting on these moments in style, you may want to make a connection to some of the writers on writing that we’ve discussed together, or you may want to point to a feature that seems distinctive to this particular author. The goal is to draw attention to something that a writer has achieved in terms of voice or style.
Do your best to fit your two examples on one side of a page. Make 13 copies of that page and bring them with you to class. We’ll read and discuss them. But please also post a copy of your x12 to your Dropbox folder by 9:00 am on Wed, 4/25.
I look forward to seeing the work you bring forward!
