Lynda Barry, an award-winning cartoonist, also teaches courses on writing, drawing, and creativity at UW-Madison. This illustrated notebook recounts her thoughts, assignments, syllabus, and student work from the planning stages of a course about writing through the actual instruction. She designed the class exercises and lesson plans around the idea that anyone can be a writer. The assignments not only push students to be more creative when responding to writing prompts but also in their everyday lives.
