Inhalt As of 21 January 2022, the course is full. Anyone signing up now will be on a waiting list.

The title of the course says what it's about: writing 111 words a day throughout the semester. Every day, all the participants will choose a topic and write 111 words in English about that topic - no more, no less, exactly 111 words. Each day's text should make a specific claim about that day's topic. Students can choose their topics from any university course they are taking (or have taken), as well as from cultural, political, or social issues that come up during the semester. While this will involve of a lot of creativity, your focus should be on criticism in a broad sense, and not on creative writing (poetry, fiction, drama). [That's 111 words.]
The daily texts will be posted to ADAM for us to read. Class time will involve writing new texts as well as discussions of selected texts. - This course is an experiment. The instructor and the participants will work together to decide what to do with the texts and how to discuss them. The only thing that is set in stone is the project: 111 words a day, from the first day of class to the last. - It was going to be 100 words a day, because one of the course's goals is to work on concision and precision - but 111 is a much cooler number: eine Schnapszahl, but also charmingly arbitrary. [That's 111 words.]
One student's 111-word description of the course from Spring 2021: "I'm incredibly thankful that I got the chance to take this course. I learnt so much over the past few weeks, not only spelling and grammar but also that we're allowed to write what we think. With the daily inspiration of the others' texts, we discussed so many important and controversial topics, from racism to heterosexuality, but also very personal ones. As time passed, more and more wrote about personal issues, and I'm surprised how easy it was to open up to those lovely people I met. I wouldn't have thought that I'd one day be so confident about writing what's inside my head and, especially, showing it to other people."
