What Makes Good Writing


  • Read excerpt from The Garlic Ballads
  • Decide if you like it or not, and choose a passage that you particularly liked or disliked for plot or language.
  • Begin writing your criteria for good writing
  • Write a list of at least five items that need to be present for you to consider something well-written.  These can be related to literary analysis, but they do not have to be.
  • Bring in a one-page example of writing that resonates with you, that you like and that fits this particular list of criteria that you are making.

First Day

Hi Everyone!

Welcome back to school!  You may recall that we just spent today looking over the syllabus.  


None, but don't get too used to it!
