    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course took me on a journey of self discovery that I never imagined and I will never forget.

    Course highlights:

    On a particular poetry writing assignment, I discovered the reality of the environment I existed in was just my view of that reality. I love that julie gives students the opportunity to grow and learn about themselves in a non pressured way.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write everyday even when there are no assignments due.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is good for anyone who wants to find new creative techniques for writing fiction. It breeds well spoken pupils with an eye for the unusual in everyday life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that you don't have to wait for inspiration to strike to start writing, you just have to look at conventional things in an unconventional way. Also, peer review is a big part of this course, so I got to know how other people see my work and how people perceive certain types of fiction in general.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to have a lot of writing assignments. Don't be afraid to turn in work you're not perfectly happy with - original work is rarely reaches perfection according to the writer. What you see as in need of severe revision, the teacher might perceive as an incredibly point of view and great progress.
