For next week:

1.) take a look at a few of the essays and examples we didn't get to (Drucker, Hayles, or Ubuweb);
2.) begin or gather a text that you think you would like to "set" visually. If you are not sure where to start, type up a few paragraphs of improvisational description: a place, a mood etc. and bring it to class. Ideally you think about visual possibilities as you compose/ revise, and this set of concerns plays into your inventive process!
3.) Have a preview look at the Scribus Tutorial which is where I'm planning to start. *) If you would like to use your own laptop, please download and test Scribus before class.
