syllsyllb syllb2Syllabus: Notes From an Accidental Professor by Lynda Barry (D&Q) $19.95 – Lynda Barry runs a highly popular writing workshop for nonwriters called Writing the Unthinkable. Syllabus is the first book to make her innovative lesson plans and writing exercises available to the public for home or classroom use. Barry teaches a method of writing that focuses on the relationship between the hand, the brain, and spontaneous images, both written and visual. It has been embraced by people across North America—prison inmates, postal workers, university students, high-school teachers, and hairdressers—for opening pathways to creativity. Collaged texts, ballpoint-pen doodles, and watercolor washes adorn Syllabus’s yellow lined pages, which offer advice on finding a creative voice and using memories to inspire.
