WRIT 141 - Storytelling

3 credits
An exploration of the nature, use and practice of storytelling. The course encourages students to consider how various forms of narrative - from ad campaigns, greeting cards, and political campaigns to movies and rap music - convey stories and ideas; how oral, pictorial, and written narratives differ; and how medium affects narrative. Creative exercises in a range of media help students reflect on the many ways that a narrative can be manipulated and exploited to powerful effect.
