    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend creative writing because it teaches you how to develop better skill levels in your writing. You're taught to really just be yourself when you write, then again, you have to know when you need to be serious in your criteria as well.

    Course highlights:

    going to the university of Alabama to see what a course is like for a creative writing or broadcast class is like; it was absolutely satisfying, if you know what you're going for. Just don't be afraid to ask questions.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    if you don't like writing and turning things in on time, don't take this class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course if you absolutely love writing, because it is a lot of writing. I honestly believe this course prepares young writers to expand their horizon. Writing a children's book is a lot of work and giving it away after you worked so hard, is kind of tough; Looking at the experience, it's worth it. You learn that someone other than yourself will cherish your work.

    Course highlights:

    Going to workshops at the University of Alabama were so exciting. The classes on sports journalism were my absolute favorite, because I am a sports fanatic; In the lesson I gained a lot more knowledge than I expected. Specifically, from my perspective, Athletes should not write about the sports that they play because it intertwines with opinion and outside opinions. The month of November was NanoWriMo; I started but I never finished but that experience was interesting, especially the videos.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you hate writing and due dates, do not take this course. Something in this class is always due.

    It is important to keep a journal with you to keep track of your ideas or experiences to include in your writing pieces. Also, take advantage of any chance you get to practice your writing because it makes a difference and builds confidence in your writing skills.
