Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is perfect for anyone interested in writing. Through many great exercises and reading materials, you will learn to write in many different ways and have fun experimenting with your writing. Shena McAuliffe is a very helpful professor and her feedback to you will help you thoroughly engage with reading and writing.
I learned more about myself as a writer and, through workshops, what I want to focus on as I continue. I learned how to better take in short fiction and learn from every aspect of it, from diction, to setting, to characters.

Advice for students:
Thoroughly read everything assigned and give yourself enough time to really put effort into the writing assignments. You will get so much more out of the class discussions and the feedback. Also, make sure to be thoughtful and helpful with your fellow students when critiquing their writing. Everyone has work to do and putting your all into your work will not only benefit you, but your fellow classmates and writers.
