This course will examine how professional writers have utilized graphic storytelling to convey complex information to non-expert communities. While manuals and specifications have long been held to be the genres that technical writers create, increasingly, they are also turning to comics as a genre to disseminate complex information to audiences. Specifically, this course will focus on comics which have presented technical information that is aimed at underrepresented and marginalized communities—both created by technical writers and also created by members of communities themselves. Our texts will cover two important threads: Firstly we will explore the need for more equitable and accessible documentation across medical, legislative, and industrial settings for multiply-marginalized peoples. Secondly, we will look at comics as examples that have been created to help bridge such gaps for communities of color, GLTBTQ folx, and neurodiverse populations. Students will be asked to draft their own comics or storyboards that help to convey complex information in accessible ways--please note that no artistic ability or experience is necessary. This course satisfies a requirement for English with Professional Writing students, a WAC Writing in the Discipline requirement, an Integration in the Humanities requirement, and the Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice requirement. Prerequisite: ENGL 121 or 190

A workshop experience involving the ongoing exploration of subject matter and technique. Readings will include theoretical and creative texts. This course will also discuss fiction writing in publishing contexts -- how literary works are written, revised, submitted, acquired, edited, and marketed by presses. The course will also give students insight into broader issues in the publishing world such as the rise of small and independent presses, university presses, traditional major presses, as well as online publishing, self publishing, and issues of access and diversity in the literary marketplace. The course will include guest lectures or other engagements with agents and/or editors from the publishing community.
