For the final project for my ENGL200 “Creative Writing Intensive” course at ACAD students were asked to draw upon the course’s texts and discussions, the lessons and the advice, the engagements with technology (old and new) and media (online and not) and create a small publication. Each student was responsible for the creation of a small press publication of their creative writing that engaged with the issues and ideas of the course, and needed to reflect on the books and discussions. Books were to be made in  editions of AT LEAST 20 COPIES and were to be sensitive to form and content.

On the last day of classes students exchanged work – which meant that they gave away 1 copy of their book to every other student (and the instructor) and received in exchange 1 copy of every other assignment from all the other students … they left the course with 20 different small press editions … here are some highlights (click on each for a larger image):

 

ROOMS

I am super-pleased to announce that my ACAD ENGL317 students have just published

ROOMS by Gertrude Stein

With Rooms students at The Alberta College of Art + Design’s ENGL317 — “Contemporary Narrative” — work to illustrate and respond to the final section of Gertrude Stein’s modernist masterpiece Tender Buttons. In turns irreverent and humorous, abstract and representational, playful and serious, Rooms displays how reading and visuality are irrevocably tied.
