    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was an open-ended type of course. All you had to do was show up and do the work. It was also lots of fun!

    Course highlights:

    I became a more versatile writer, and built upon/enhanced what I already knew. I also produced half a novel for NaNoWriMo and several other publishable pieces.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be willing to take criticism on your writing, and participate! Otherwise, you are wasting your time and money. You will only get out of it what you put into it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was excellent, but I did not like the required reading material, very liberal/socialist. If you have any conservative view, you will not enjoy the class.

    Course highlights:

    This was my first college class so I did learn a lot about posting, etc. My Professor was excellent and very helpful.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep up, don't fall behind. Always be near an Internet connection.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned how to write in ways I hadn't thought of before, through creative writing prompts and exercises. We also participated in the NaNoWriMo competition, which I would've never done had it not been for the class; I ended up dusting off an old novel idea and writing 25K words, which motivates me to finish it.

    Course highlights:

    Having 8 new blog posts and incredible feedback on the four short stories I had to write, one of which I have expanded to a novella that will soon be ready to submit to a publisher. I also learned how to show more while telling less, and be able to tell what drives a story. I was also exposed to contemporary poetry, which has become a new love of mine.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Show up to the class and do the work. Even if you think your writing sucks, turn it in. Use the online writing lab at the school. Don't take the class if you just want to learn how to get published, take the class to learn to be a better writer, so you will increase your likelihood of getting published. If you're really interested in going all the way, ask to join the Literary Roundtable at the school.
