How is AI changing the way we teach and practice writing?

     In this talk, entitled

“Words, words, words”: The Craft of Writing in the Age of AI

Alexa Alice Joubin (English and Digital Humanities Institute) and Kylie Quave (University Writing Program and Anthropology), will explore our society’s evolving relationship to written words and the future of the craft of writing.
