Narrative Voice - A Close 3rd : Toni Morrison's Jazz
Greetings, Class Community.
Over the past several weeks we have discussed a number of
creative writing strategies and techniques for you to consider as you revise
the stories you submitted for workshop.
In addition to improving a specific writing technique, I
would like to consider how theories associated with 'remix' impact your work.
For example, Assignment 3 asks you to use social media as an influence or as
inspiration for your story. Many of you created very interesting
Consider the how would you like them to be displayed in their final form. In addition to the changes you will make to your story in order to revise it, consider what are the remix aspects of the assignment. Think in terms of digital tools, new literacies, and what makes what you are writing specific to contemporary intersections of history and technology.
I am going to list a few links that you may find helpful in your revision/remix re-writes ;) Please feel free to add to the list by including additional links you may find helpful in the comments box.
The best close third person narrative voice can witnessed by reading the opening chapter of Toni Morrison's novel Jazz.
