Public readings (in the course which is open to guests) of original texts and subsequent response from the audience.

Learning outcomes

Acceptance of responsibility for an original writing including the ability to personally read it to others and take their reaction under consideration for futher work. This is how we discover what we actually said and how others understand us.

Prerequisites and other requirements

In one course there is usually three texts (three students). It is better, of course, if the students find their own topics and develop their writing regardless of when their turn comes. This presumes a repertoire of original attempts independent of the course.


Texts are original. Discussions often mention other writers whose work might interest the students because of some similar features which they may wish to attempt. Study material is additional individual readings.
