Beller, Thomas
Narrative Forms

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

I second the will-work-for-money opinion. This is the first writing class we've ever had a break in (a less-than-two-hour class). The first class met for a few minutes and we were told to get a book that turned out to be near impossible to find. Sometimes class let out early. We didn't begin bringing in our own work until the third week. He never gave back our last papers. Etc. An expensive disappointment.

Workload:

Teading a novel and a few short stories - with response papers - in addition to our own writing. Too much unrelated reading. How much better if we'd have read each others' work and that's it.
