Great Intro to the Subject
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is by far my favorite course that I've taken in college thus far. The Professor is witty and engaging, ensuring there is never a dull moment in class. I believe that everyone, myself especially, looks forward to this class each week. In this course you will be exposed to various different types of writing and authors that you may not have discovered otherwise. You will also do a substantial amount of your own creative writing and have the freedom to hone your skills in whatever genre you wish. No matter what writing you turn in you can also count on thoughtful, helpful feedback and the opportunity and instruction to constantly be improving your own writing.
The highlights of this course were the professor and the coursework. Professor Ellefson is a godsend both in and out of the classroom, always making himself available to students when they need help or wish to consult about their writing. I learned so much in this class. It's introduced me to fabulous authors and pieces of writing as well as how to improve my own writing and incorporate various techniques effectively.

Advice for students:
Anyone even remotely interested in writing should absolutely take this course. Even if you never take another writing course again in your life, the skills you gain in this class will stay with you and help you for years to come.
