A final paper (3-5 pages for undergraduate students; 7-10 for graduate students) is due at the last class session. Paper topic must relate to the course but is otherwise open; it may concern a single writer a selection of writers or a general writing topic that came out of course discussions (and references the semester’s readings). Not infrequently students find their own creative work affected by the writers they come into contact with in this course. Creative responses are permissible but must include a prose analysis of the relationship between your own new work and the aspect of your course experience that inspired the work. Students wishing to do a creative final project should touch base with Prof. Gelineau (in person or by e-mail) before proceeding.
Final papers must be typed. Should average 250 words per page (the average for double-spaced normal margins 12pt Times New Roman no double spacing between paragraphs).
