Professor Alden's class has writing due every week but there are no quizzes or tests. Attendance is mandatory and we do a lot of in class writing which I thought would be boring but is actually really helpful later when I have to go back and write longer pieces.(She's also been a help to me and …more understanding when I've had some tough stuff going on) less

Love this class! It was 3 hours long, but it was never boring at all. She's funny and very friendly. Homework is due weekly but it's never a pain to do because it's creative writing.

Homework every week, but pretty easy. Final is a portfolio of your work. Don't leave it until last minute, it's a lot. Doesn't explain final until the last 2 weeks of class. TA Gavin was better than professor, he's cool.

She is a great professor and very easy going. Attendance is essential in order to pass. I had her 3 hour class and she'd usually end it early so that was nice. No tests or quizzes, but there are short writing assignments every week. Not too painful and I'd definitely recommend this class.

This class is an easy A as long as you show up (and don't leave early because she requires you to sign in and out of class to get credit) and do the weekly home works which are easy and not time consuming at all. Took the three hour lecture, which was boring but bearable esp because she let us out …more early majority of the time. less

Show up to class, do your writing assignments, you'll be fine. You study poetry, fiction, and plays. You will write several poems, one short story, and one short play or long scene. The final is a portfolio of some poems (original and revised versions), your short story (original and revised …more version), and your play or scene (original and revised version). The teacher is nice and approachable if you have a problem or need an extension. less
