Loop Campus, Thursdays
Competences offered: L4, A3A, H1X, H2X
In this special 6-credit hour section of Academic Writing for Adults, students will complete the work for the required L4 competency and get extra writing practice (and an extra competence) by participating in or leading a community writing workshop. Reading and writing topics for the course will ask the questions: What is literacy? How can education empower or disempower individuals or groups? What is the value of our stories? How can our stories teach others and ultimately change the world?
This is an excellent course for students looking to take just one course in a quarter that can fulfill the minimum credit hours necessary for financial aid. It is also an excellent course for anyone interested in writing, education, issues of power, democracy and class, and storytelling.

WriteNow: National Novel Writing Month
Late Start, Loop, Wednesdays

Do you have a story to tell? If so, October/November is the time. In honor of National Novel Writing Month, SNL will premiere “WriteNow,” a 5-week course that invites students to write at least 25,000 words toward a novel, memoir, ILP, Advanced Project, or other long writing assignment. Beginning on October 10, students will have five weeks to reach their 25,000 word goal. Writing will happen both in class and as homework. Additional writing assignments will inspire reflection upon the creative process, and students will be required to present during the final week as the culminating project for the class.
