Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Tursi`s course is one for everyone on any writing level. While the course may seem like a nuisance because of the grammatical and writing errors she corrects of your papers, these help you progress your writing.
The main highlight of this course was the devoted and intricate discussions of famous short story writers including Neale Zora Hurston, Jorges Borges, and Anton Chekhov. Our class talked about the history and the literary techniques these writers used in their stylistic choices, which helped me develop my own style and voice in my writing. Throughout the discussions, I learned how to express and critique critical literary works and how to argue a thesis based on details in the story. All in all, this course helped me to become the writer I knew I was by giving me better detail oriented skills in my writing and editing skills and techniques.

Advice for students:
In order to be successful in this course is to continue editing even when you think you have the best response. Many writers who are famous today had to immense re-editing done to their work. Stephen King was even noted to throw out pages of work if it did not fit his vision. Always be attentive, and always remember that the best teacher is usually from corrected work.
