[ W3690] Senior Fiction Seminar

Anastas, Benjamin Silver_nugget
[ W3690] Senior Fiction Seminar

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

Ben is an incredibly intelligent and generous professor. It's clear that writing is his life and he is eager to share his knowledge while respecting students' opinions as well. Therefore discussions are pretty intense. It's not just 'say something so you get an A for effort.' He is serious about fiction and delves into the questions with us, as a fellow writer. His comments on our work was thoughtful -- he seemed excited by student writing -- and he is very approachable if you want to talk about anything. I highly recommend taking a class with him. He's got a wealth of knowledge and also happens to be a nice guy. Good combination.

Workload:

The first half of the course was pretty much a seminar -- readings every week and discussions and occasional exercises. The second half of the course is a workshop. Each person presents once and you write up critiques of everyone's work, just like a regular workshop.
