For years, writers of all stripes have been creating powerful books in 
which they combine their words --- be they fiction, poetry, memoir, or a 
combination of all three --- with images. More than mere illustration, 
in these works the visual and the textual are in frequent, sometimes 
confounding, conversation with each other. In this class we'll look at 
contemporary examples of authors who bring visual elements into their 
texts, including WG Sebald, Claudia Rankine, and Anne Carson. Students 
will produce writing in a genre of their choice, and workshop this 
writing in group critiques; in addition, students will cull or create 
images to partner with their words. For a final project, students will 
create chapbooks comprised of their own writing and found or created images.
