Paper Prospectus or Prospectuses

In advance of each paper that you write, you will need to submit a paper prospectus. An ungraded, informal assignment, the prospectus functions as a way to start your conversation with me in a pre-paper conference. (You can hurt your grade with the prospectus only by turning it in late or failing to turn it in at all.) At minimum, the prospectus consists of a long paragraph to a page explaining the topic you want to pursue. If you have progressed far enough to give me more information, I will read whatever you want to give me as a prospectus.
