This course is a gentle introduction to the Python programming language for writers and artists. The focus is on experimental writing with computers, including digital fiction and poetry. We ll 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 ridiculous ly high or low by sentiment algorithms; and using paper rather than screens as a medium for computational display.
