This course conditions participants to use observation and creative writing to document the times in which we live and how we interpret. We will also look at how storytellers around the world are using video journals to document life in the pandemic while examining famous (and not-so-famous) diaries throughout history including Samuel Pepys, Anne Frank, and Eleanor Coppola.
