In this three-session course, we will explore using artificial intelligence (AI) tools at different stages of our writing process. We will gain experience working with various AI applications through experiments, guided reflections, and selected readings. This course aims to empower participants to reflect on their writing process, navigate the creative possibilities offered by AI and develop their understanding of what AI can and cannot do. No prior experience with AI or programming is required; the course is designed to be accessible to writers of all levels. A reader will be provided before class. Class will not meet during the week of Thanksgiving.
