    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you find yourself drawn to the sort of hippie vibe that lies in Burlington, you will love this class. If you write well and generally easily and are looking for a challenge, this is a great class. The workload is reasonable, but there is a lot expected of you as a student. He expects four pages a week and one hand-written anthology of 100 poems by the end of the year. If you like writing and want to be surrounded by similar people, this class is comfortable and great and breaks boundaries for each individual. Ellefson is crazy and great and has so many stories to tell and is so passionate about the course. It's a fun class, but you have to be a little devoted, as it is almost three hours long.

    Course highlights:

    Acting out poetry which helped bring me out of my shell and sounds crazy, but really helped the class bond. I learned a lot about writing poetry, which was not my medium, I learned how to analyze work and get criticisms from others as well as share my own work and work that had impressed me. I was also made to write more, which is a skill I am so thankful for. The speed in which I can produce writing now has grown significantly.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Write the four pages or two poems required each class as early as possible. Take notes on the readings for the little quizzes he has and be prepared for anything. He will make sure you are comfortable, and if you lag behind, talk to him, because he is one of the most understanding professor you will find.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    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.

    Course highlights:

    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.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    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.
