Writing and Composition Workshop (SPANLANG 102 and SPANLANG 201SL) is designed for advanced students with a good understanding of spelling and syntax. In this course, we focus on the craft of writing, including brainstorming, planning, outlining, drafting, revising, and editing. Spanish majors write mostly on literary or cultural topics, while non-majors may choose to explore topics relevant to their respective academic specialties.

The course includes an optional community-engaged, service learning (SL) component in which students are paired with a Spanish-speaking Stanford worker to co-create digital stories about the worker's life experiences. When taken as Spanlang 102SL, it counts as a Cardinal Course (certified by the Haas Center).

Spanlang 102 and 102SL may be taken concurrently with courses in the Spanish major, so that this course acts as a workshop for writing to be completed for the concurrent Spanish course. For further information, contact Vivian Brates at or Ali Miano at
