Blogging The Familiar

In January 2015, students at Weber State University joined students at UC Santa Barbara, UC Davis, University of Notre Dame, Clemson University, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and De Montfort University in a collaborative reading of Mark Z. Danielewski’s latest novel, The Familiar: Volume 1.  We read advanced copies of the novel (which was not published until May 2015).

Our shared discussion can be found at

To guide their discussion, students in “The Future of Fiction” completed a two-part assignment:  contributing blog posts to the shared discussion, and writing a reflection paper analyzing the experience of blogging collaboratively about a yet-to-be-published novel.
