    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Myers is such a helpful individual. She is passionate about her work and cares about your success. She will go above and beyond to ensure that she offers her students the best possible advice. I would take her again in a heartbeat.

    Course highlights:

    I would recommend following her prompts to get the best from her lectures. Professor Myers help break down literary pieces to a level where you can fully digest the meaning behind the art.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you follow the syllabus because you will have a pop quiz every week regarding one of the readings. Professor Myers usually gives you hints on which one of the writings she will quiz on. The best advice I can give is just to do your reading.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it allows for 30-40 students to share their work and receive ideas for improvements, which we all know there is always room for.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to produce the basic short story and make necessary revisions on my pieces. At the same time, this class allowed us to read others' stories and help them better their works. Another highlight of this course was the ability to study and write poetry. Contrary to my expectations, haikus/ sonnets, we were able to write poems in free verse.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Start writing stories before you take the class. If you have something you have been working on, now is your chance to get it critiqued and improve it so that later down the road you might be able to publish it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great class for student writers. It allows students to share and critique short stories and poems. It is done in a panel like style giving everyone an opportunity to receive criticism and feedback. By the end of this course students will have learned the fundaments of creating a short story and learning to write free verse poems.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed this class very much. It helped me take my ideas and brainstorms and turned them into live pieces. In this class I also gained knowledge of sensory language, imagery, and how to produce more vivid of stories using greater details.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would suggest getting use to journaling. Journaling is not only a requirement for this class but a great source of inspiration for further pieces. I would also suggest writing early on in the class so that you are prepared and not rushed.
