This course refines basic writing skills, develops sophisticated techniques of written expression, and establishes a critical editorial sense with respect to the cadet's own composition and the writing of others. Exemplary readings give substance to daily writing, while revision and conferencing emphasize the requirement for restriction, unity, precision, and organization. The course requires the achievement of competence appropriate for a college graduate and necessary for an Army Officer. Course activities include a lecture by renowned travel writer Pico Iyer.
