Great Intro to the Subject
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course has been a huge start for me. I learned different methods that writers use like the heart, head, and gut methods. I really got close with other students and we worked together so well. It really gives you the chance to learn off of each other. This course focused on practice too. We would complete lots of creative prompts that were designed to bring out creativity.
I learned more about showing versus telling. This course actually helped shift my focus from writing all these details to just saying what needs to be said. I loved how content was the main focus and how the professor showed us how to evaluate characters.

Advice for students:
This involves a good bit of writing so you either need to really love it or really want to get better at it. You also have to have pride in your work because this class requires you to read in front of the class while others critique you. It really helps if you can take criticism well.
