About this course:

This writing course focuses on current events. Discussion and writing is based on pundits and political writers such as Thomas Friedman, Pico Iyer, and Doris Kearns Goodwin, and many more that the class may wish to cover. An easy technique of “writing faster than you can think” gives you the opportunity to navigate the explosive waves of the times we are in as well as create a personal story within a political and societal perspective.
