When I started this class, I was really skeptical of these “experiments.” I thought this class was going to push me to write new genres in a more conventional way. I really didn’t see how these experiments were going to push me as a writer. However, throughout the experiment’s and the investigations into the genres I was working with, I have been exposed to different types of writing and styles. My dad has always told me that the way to become a better writer is simply to read, and now, I understand what he means by that.
Through investigating genres, finding models and reading my peers’ work, I have been pushed to become a better and more diverse writer than I have ever been. I’ve learned that I like to write non-fiction and personal pieces and that I don’t particularly enjoy fiction writing or creating podcasts.
My final project feels like a perfect culmination of the semester. It allows me to focus on the issue of feminism and women’s rights, to create a medium for other women’s voices to be heard and to share my own voice. Can’t wait for you to see it!
