Grading final unessays for my Contemporary American Lit class, which is always a delight. One of my favorite unessays so far (on Ling Ma's _Severance_) is a collection of social media accounts for various characters, as well as the contents of one character's Notes app. The novel is in many ways a meditation on connectivity through technology, so this approach fits perfectly.


@samplereality oh wow

I long for the day when the unessay is the default form of essay assignment

not sure what we'd call that synthesis, but I'm happy to leave that to future generations
