    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's a small class with a lot of one on one with the instructor. It's a very fun and imaginative class with a lot of forgiveness and leeway. If you need a GPA boost it's extremely hard to get anything below a B.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about fiction writing. How to set up a good scene, how to exemplify dialogue. Along with how atmosphere and what the best ways for getting information to a reader are.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just do the weekly readings and show up to class on time and you'll do wonderfully.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Davis is a wonderful professor. He orchestrates his class in such a way that the students actually WANT to show up to class, pay attention, and succeed. Despite intro level classes usually having a wide range of skill levels, I feel like he did a very good job at incorporating all kinds of knowledge that any writer could use, no matter how skilled or unskilled they were.

    Course highlights:

    In my own writing, I tend to write a lot of things that might be considered abstract in nature. Professor Davis agreed to meet with me one time, and I learned a lot about how, while abstract writing is fine, it needs to be grounded by something in the story so the reader understands what it is trying to mean. He also taught a lot about character development and how voice is important in story writing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When you are assigned something to read for the next day, make sure that you read it, because if you don't, you will be completely lost the entire next class session. Almost always, the class is basically a giant discussion group about the reading that is assigned; if you don't do the reading, you might as well not show up to class. It's almost always very good writing, though, so it's fun to do anyway, why not just do the work?

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was a very engaging, small class! We had to read a lot of short stories and I really enjoyed that, as I normally don't have the time for it.

    Course highlights:

    Being able to express myself through writing in a fun way. We didn't have weird prompts, you got to do it all yourself.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up on the readings and always do the workshop letters. Also engage in the conversations every class, it looks better!
