ENG 1101 LC31 Fall 2018

We think differently about writing than most. We generate and edit, analyze and share; and our thoughts and feelings take shape on the page in the form of written words. Paragraphs get hewed and sculpted. Ideas get carried into concrete expressions. And…blam. There we are, ready for Posterity. Let history say what it will about our toil this Freshman term. We are writers and we take our orders from a higher power: our desire to be heard and our belief in the power of communication. This class is also part of a First Year Learning Community paired with Communications Design: Typography. Its overall name is “The Shape of Language.” COM-D 1127 is a foundation course in typography with emphasis on using type for a range of industry related application–from print to interactive.
