"This course will provide an introduction to the range of writing studies and an opportunity to reflect on the meaning for your own writing and development as a writer.
Writing studies has developed knowledge that can help you understand your own processes as a writer, the kinds of writing you might engage with, the tools of writing available to you, and how that writing may have an effect on others. Writing Studies grew out of the teaching of writing but extends to understand the role of writing in people's lives, the development of writing competence over the lifespan, the historical development of writing practices, the changing forms of writing with changing technologies, the role of writing in forming and sharing knowledge, and the uses and forms of writing take throughout society, governance, and the economy. Writing studies moves beyond the classroom to all aspects of life and takes a multi-disciplinary perspective."
