Fiction, Non-Fiction and Cool Writing
Reviewed by Karla S. on 11/24/2019
While the instructor was very nice and seemed very well qualified, I did have a few issues: 1. When I arrived at the specified address it was difficult to find the correct entrance and it could have been indicated. Then, the security guard at the desk did not know where my class was. I had to wander around looking until I was late and someone called me to find out whether I was attending. I did not see any phone number in the confirmation e-mail that I could have called when I was lost. 2. The class started almost 30 min late. 3. There was only one other person in the class and she was 12 while I am 43. While she was very sweet and I enjoyed getting to know her, our experience levels and age difference made it difficult to have a cohesive class. 4. We took home a few good exercises, but did not really spend more than 15-20 minutes writing during the class. We shared some, but did not really get to talk about writing technique. 5. The advice shared was very general in nature-- the best thing I took away from the class was to have a bulletin board with post-its to set up my writing ideas and make them more visible, which is a great idea, but it didn't really help me with my own writing. In general this class would be ok for beginners. I wish that we had spent more time writing, sharing our own writing and/or reading.
