Lynda Barry’s 7-Minute Diary

“Your Daily Dairy will teach you to hear, see, and remember the world around you,” cartoonist Lynda Barry writes in Syllabus. She offers a daily seven-minute diary as a simple frame for tuning in and noticing where we are and what we’re doing. We’ll keep daily diaries in a composition notebook using Barry’s framework, then use this material in class as prompts to create new work. This class is for students of all levels and interests. Comp book required.
