Abstract: You will submit approximately four independent (see exception below) 1-page, double-spaced papers each week on days Sunday-Thursday (no submission Friday-Saturday). Of the four pages you submit, occasionally two may be one “paper.” In other words, if you’d like to combine two days of writing into one 2-page theme, and then write two additional, independent 1-page themes for the week, that’s fine. Do keep in mind, though, that the goal is for you to write on a daily basis. You are exempt from writing themes the week your larger writing project is workshopped or due (see syllabus). By the end of the semester, you should have approximately 44 one-page daily themes, a midterm 5-page essay, and an 8-page final research paper. Your themes are due by midnight each weeknight (i.e. excluding weekends and holidays). You can only turn in one theme per day (Sun-Thurs), and all themes must be submitted by Thursday, Dec 1. Turn in two-page themes on the second “day.” Each week, the subjects of your daily themes should be inspired by several things: The New Yorker; your research interests, and the list of topical assignments. Here’s what you’ll be writing (always write your NY themes before class Thursday and always privilege them in short weeks; in other words, if you write only 2 themes in one week—i.e. b/c you attend a Writing Fellow group session and b/c you have a 2-pager—they must both be NY themes):
