    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ian James, or more commonly known as Electric, is just that; electric. He's knowledgeable, and passionate about his subject material.

    Course highlights:

    Getting cross trained in film, tv, and play by someone from the industry was incomparable experience. Electric was very knowledgeable on the material, and it only helped us learn more and grow as writers. The course was a lot of work, but it pushed me to be better and do better.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to write. A lot. And don't be afraid of writing something bad, because bad writing can always be shaped into good writing.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Very informative class. You will learn so many different writing strategies and read many books and poems you probably never even heard of!

    Course highlights:

    Learning how to write long thorough essays without repeating claims over and over again. Also to bring more of a unique flair to the essay so that way it doesn't sound bland.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Brush up on your reading and writing skills and make sure you put details into everything

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    First of all, it's required for first year dramatic writing students. But it's also a great place to meet your people for once! I was lucky and had a great class full of talented writers who made me better, and many of whom I not only want to work with in the future but also just want to be friends with. You learn so much from the experience of your professor but also from the work that you and your colleagues will produce throughout the course. As long as you give your all to craft, craft will give its all to you.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely the final products. The first play, the screenplay, the TV pilot, and then the return to plays. It was thrilling to see the kind of long pieces you're capable of creating and watching your own growth throughout the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be willing to put in a lot of time. For the class, yes, because it's very demanding. And yes there is reading and other homework involved... But mostly for the writing. You're going to care a lot about the work you produce for this class, so make sure you make time to care for it in the way it deserves. Plan. Outline. Write. Rewrite. Edit. This is what you came to school here for. It is important.
