Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Leslie is nice. And she cares a lot about us. However, I really didn't like the format of the class - rather than workshopping regularly, we discussed published short stories for 2 hours every week and only workshopped our pieces in the last 3 meetings. We were supposed to meet in groups to workshop on our own but I doubt many groups met that often... I mean, we were all 2nd semester seniors. The final pieces were pretty awesome - they were generally revisions of older pieces made into larger collections around some sort of theme - so our "reading" was good. But I guess I wish it was run like a traditional writing course rather than an English class.

Workload:

submit a final "project" (some people wrote novels/
novellas, others wrote collections of stories/essays, some turned in a project that they were starting to work on)
