In the Fall 2021 semester, I will be teaching an online graduate course on mindful writing: ENG 835: Mindful Writing: Theory and Practice. If you're interested in learning more about mindful writing, this could be the opportunity for you.
The class meets on Zoom on Wednesdays from 4:30-6:50 PM, EST.
This course explores mindfulness as writing theory and practice and examines the impact of present awareness on the writing process and rhetorical situation. We study rhetorical factors of impermanence, audience, internal rhetoric, verbal emptiness, mindful invention, and the embodied and material conditions of writing. We apply present-moment awareness to writing to reduce obstacles that come from mindlessness or future- or past-oriented approaches. Students practice frequent mindful writing techniques for use in the classroom and their writing. 3 credits.
