Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I loved the open creativity required for this class. While we had assigned readings to analyze as a class and aid us in our own writing techniques, we have complete freedom over the topics, styles, and languages we wished to incorporate into our personal stories. This class contributed to my declaring a writing minor, it made me fall in love with this type of expression.
We learned to write creative fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. In order to succeed at these different genres, we learned several techniques and analyzed different readings to better our own writing.

Advice for students:
I would say to be open to expressing yourself, even if it may feel too personal--that's what helps make writing great. While some of the readings aren't that interesting or may be confusing, push through and try to understand the point of each one, it will help. Specific to this professor, we had a personal journal to write freewrites in every day. The professor never reads your journal and therefore you can be as open as you want, this helps when you get to creating your stories.
