CNF Workshop: Today: Black. Thus endeth the second rotation. I gave out the packets for Rotation 3. For Tuesday: Shaffer, Patterson and Hromika.

Screenwriting Workshop: Today we workshopped Sydney and Savanna. We will unfortunately not reach our goal; on Tuesday you will get the screenplays of Kat, Zack, and Bethany and will have time to work on them. We will finish up this round the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.

The Siren: Worked on getting the new edition together — sorry today was pretty scattershot. The goal is still to have the second issue out Tuesday. Thanks for the hard work on it, everyone!

Style: Today we talked a bit about the David Foster Wallace essays. Lots of people were absent. Here is the board, make sure to talk to a classmate who was here if you have any questions:

The approach to take on this style is pretty straightforward. His voice is pretty distinct and so should be fairly easy to mimic, and the structure is pretty clear. Lots of tangents, research, footnotes, etc.

Reading for Writers:

Survey: Poetry: Midterm today. If you were absent, you will take it Tuesday.

For Tuesday: Read Chapter 8, and please bring in the two packets (Betjeman and Hayes) that I gave you at the beginning of the year. We are going to start using them more regularly now.
