    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an excellent course. Writing assignments are small to keep you focused on the theme and subject we are working on.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to keep my self focused when writing. It is easy to get distracted and go too many ways that don't make sense. Feedback is great in the class. The professor is awesome and gives great feedback to help you.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up with the syllabus. It will help you stay on track and do the reading. It is easy not to because its an online course but the information in the text is vital to the assignments.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    For anyone who wanting to venture into creative writing, this is the class to start. This beginners class gives one the knowledge to become the writer they are meant to be.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course or to just write, revise, and write some more. The best way to achieve the goal of being a writer is to simply write. I learned that it is okay to not have the story all there or to want to change it when it's almost done. I learned that it's okay to have writer's block. The main thing is this course is to help you achieve the best writing you can.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To students considering this course I would say that you should definitely go for it. If your goal isn't to be a writer, this course is still a good course for those who want to expand their mind and step into their imagination. For example, if one wants to be a lawyer, this course is great because it will help them express a witness statement to the jury in a way that the jury can see the story the way they want them to.
