Spring’18: Women in Literature

“When I say storytelling, I don’t just mean sitting down and telling a once-upon-a-time kind of story. I mean a whole way of seeing yourself, the people around you, your life, the place of life in the bigger context, not just in terms of nature and location, but in terms of what has gone on before and what’s happened to other people.” – Leslie Marmon Silko, Laguna Pueblo

Prof. Sneider Builds Writing App

Prof. Leah Sneider (MC-R, English), has created an iPhone/iPad app aimed at the pre-writing process. Congratulations, Leah!

From the website:

The Write Tool app is designed to guide the user through the pre-writing process via a series of interactive steps that rely on user input. You can jump around the different steps of the pre-writing process as needed. You may save projects and return to them later, export them to Word, Google Docs, iCloud, Dropbox, or email them to yourself, your instructor, or whomever.
