Description

Kent Shaw, Assistant Professor of English and Creative Writing, uses DH to establish a quantifiable definition for the “radical revision” of a poem in his creative writing workshop. Using the Wheaton College-based stylistic analysis tool, Lexos, students compare poem drafts via digital text files which they upload to the tool. The digital component can introduce an element of gamification for some classes. It also sets a concrete challenge for injecting even more creativity into the poem.
