  22. Creative Writing ProjectThe theme of your story will be:“Together, Alone” • Due 3/12: A hard copy of your Hopper and Hemingway inspired Powerpoint story! Page 1 of your Powerpoint = The Hopper image inspiring your story with its title and date below it. Pages 2 and 3 of your Powerpoint = A story that is at least 2 slides using 20 point font and is written in the style of Hemingway. (You will need to examine his works closely in order to mimic it effectively.) The theme of your story needs to be “Together, Alone.” • Due 3/14 at the beginning of class to my email inbox: The FINAL draft of your story that is at least 2 slides using 20 point font with NO ERRORS. Remember, it needs to capture the theme of “TOGETHER, ALONE” and be directly inspired by the image you selected and mimic Hemingway’s writing style. *If you are worried about submitting this electronically via email, then please save your Powerpoint to a flash drive so that you can put it on my computer as you enter class on3/14. Additionally, to ensure that your assignment is not inaccessible, consider sending it to me early, and also send yourself a copy, to a different email than your Firstclass account. If you have any questions about the submission process, please speak to me in person during tutorial or send me an email. Finally, if you do not want to participate in the Peer review day on 3/12 because you feel that it infringes on the rule of no assignmetn being due on that day, that is fine, your final draft will still be due on 3/14, and I will have an alternative assignment for you to complete in class on 3/12,
