Sometimes you find a book and there is something new and magical on every page. You read. You turn the page. There is an answer to all of your questions. And another answer! There are ideas and ways of thinking you never considered.
Lynda Barry’s Syllabus: Notes from an Accidental Professor is one of those books.
Barry has been an artist-in-residence at several schools and leads writing workshops all over the country. Syllabus is a compilation of the sylllabi and homework her students encountered in her “Unthinkable Mind” classes as well as her thoughts on teaching and inspirations.
Take a look at Barry’s Syllabus for some inspiration of your own.
