    | Would highly recommend.

    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I feel like everyone had a world inside of them. Whether it's sword and sorcery or a sci-fi future, writing about it can be both helpful and gratifying. This class can teach you how to write about it so that it is engaging and interesting to others.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to improve my own writing, and that in turn will help me get into my worlds better.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice is to be creative. Don't rewrite something you read, be original. This is your world, have fun with it.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because for those who love writing, it is so much fun!!! The textbooks are highly engaging and I still read them for fun. I did it online through VLACS too, as a dual credit class. Everything about it was great. Lots of reading, writing, and discussions.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about tension and plotmaking, as well as how to create well-rounded characters that had many layers and were unique, though relatable. I learned the importance of setting, and got to practice more imagery development. Each module was on a different area of creative writing (plays, memoirs, etc) and I was taught to "write what you know", even if it's the last thing you want to write about. It was great, and peers were encouraging.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have fun with this class! And ask questions if some of the instructions seem odd, you won't be the only one. I had a friend who started it a month before who warned me about a couple lessons' instructions being too vague and costing her a grade (though she could have re-done her work, the instructor was very amiable).
