Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in this Columbia College Chicago Catalog; however, the Catalog is not a contract but rather a guide for the convenience of students. Columbia College Chicago reserves the right to change or withdraw courses; to change the fees, rules, and calendar for admission, registration, instruction, and graduation; and to change any of its policies or other provisions listed in the Catalog at any time.
This course requires that students use various writing exercises to experiment with generating their own written material, whether it be autobiographical, character driven, or a literary adaptation. They will learn how to present their personal work in monologue form with the focus on culminating in one five minute solo performance piece, to be presented during Performance Week. Students will also be exposed to the work of various contemporary solo performance artists. There will be some journal writing as well as weekly writing assignments.
