Blog writing response RELIGION AND FANTASY
This will take on the form of a blog for an erudite popular readership. This means that it will be 800-1,000 words, on the topic of your choice, analyzing one or several of the readings down below. You can include information from other readings that you may have done on the same authors if you would like. You don’t actually have to post a public blog; the idea is to learn the format of writing a thoughtful piece suitable for an online format.
