Most of the students in Professor Steven Hayward's English class had never even stepped foot in the press. However, during the 8th and 9th of October 2009 they had a crash course in letterpress design, typesetting, and printing. Under the guidance of Colin Frazer the class worked together to assemble the lines of Chapter Six, a poem they had co-written. Completed as a pamphlet the finished work was elegant and simple, and each student took home a copy. Professor Hayward is responsible for the unusual colophon quoted here: "This Exquisite Corpse was produced by Hayward's Beginning Fiction Workshop. Block 2 2009 * When the world was young."

Students assembling type.

And expressing some confusion....

The finished product!
