Digitizing Essay Two

Email the link to your essay on Medium to the members of your workshop group. Read through at least two of the pieces you’ve been sent, looking for points where the writers might “digitize” their essays through adding:

  • Hyperlinks
  • Images
  • Video clips
  • Audio clips

Note these possible additions on a piece of paper or in an email to the author. Try to make it as clear as you can what you think the author might do. (For instance, “add image from the ad campaign here”, or “insert link to critic’s essay here”.) If you can suggest a specific image or file, please do so. Try to suggest at least five items the author might add to her or his essay.

We’ll spend about 20 minutes with these pieces. When I call time, read through what your readers have suggested, and do some googling to see if you can make those changes.

To Do

No class on Thurs, 12/01.

  1. Mon, 12/05, 4:00 pm: Post your digitized essay as “Public” to Medium. If you wish to apply for extra credit, send me an email in which you (a) provide the URL for your piece, (b) outline the important ways in which you have digitized your essay [10 points], and (c) point to substantive additions you have made to your actual writing [10 points].
  2. Tues, 12/06: Bring a laptop with you to class. We will have an arcade in which we look at one one another’s digitized essays.
