Guidelines for Journal Entries

In your journal, you should record impressions, ideas, feelings about "living art and making fiction" as inspired by the weekly common hours. Look for connections to ideas that have been discussed in our class meetings (such connections won't always be obvious!). I'm interested in the progress of your thinking about art generally as well as about fiction specifically. You should consider art as both process and product. If you react negatively to a common hour, try to explain what bothered you about it. Same goes for reading assignments or workshop sessions.

Journal entries will be collected on Fridays. Each entry should consist of at least a half-page and no more than a single page (typewritten, single-spaced, 12 point font). Don't forget to date your entries. Hand in past entries along with the new ones, keeping them together in a file folder.
