This course studies computational and data-driven tools for writing poetry and fiction. The focus is on experimental writing with computers, including digital fiction and poetry. Students will also explore novel forms of collaboration with the computer, such as using an AI-generated passage of text as the seed for a more conventionally authored short story; writing a poem that contains lines and stanzas scored either ridiculously high or low by sentiment algorithms; using paper rather than screens as a medium for computational display.
