Today was “Franco Friday” in my creative writing class. I gave the students background on James Franco’s numerous MFA degrees, as well as his books. Then we “analyzed” some of his greater lines. The students’ task was to take one such greater line and continue on with it mimicking James Franco’s style. It was such fun to hear them share. So horribly bad. They were so inspired by his words, they decided to create new creative writing shirts. James would be proud.
