Creative Project Assignment
This assignment asks you to create something that is not a
written argument on paper, but that nevertheless shows a thoughtful and
original response to one or several novels and novelists you've read
for this class. Projects should aim to draw on a unique strength
or interest of yours, whether from another academic field besides
literature (e.g. history, psychology, sociology, communications), from
the fine arts, from design and engineering.
What you will turn in must include a 1-page written summary of
why you chose the project and what you aimed to show with it, but the
form of the rest of the project will be up to you. The project may be
in the form of creative writing (fiction, poem, play, comic strip); web
page(s), power-point files, programs, animation(s), film, video, visual
art, music, 3-D model, clothing design.
The project may be about the novel, or its author.
