Read the “Express Yourself” chapter from The Radical Write by Bobby Hawthorne. Think of an idea for a personal reflection column.

Write your column. Finish a first draft, have a friend read over it. Get some good feedback and revise. And read over it again. Make it better and better. Take your time but you do have a deadline. Make it at least 500 words.

DEADLINE: End of class Friday, Dec. 7
