Have I mentioned that I am doing a research project along with my students for my advanced composition class. They have their own projects while I have mine: will AI replace composition instructors in the near term?

I decided to let the online program copy.ai (7 day trial) create a Valentine’s card with these keywords and audience: as a writing instructor in the time of AI and pandemic writing to an enemy (perhaps this WritingBot).
Here is one of the texts it generated:
I didn’t plan to send you this but the screen popped up and I was writing copy with no idea of what I was saying, so here it is–

Here is the Valentine’s day card it generated just for me to share with you.
