Rosario, Nelly Silver_nugget
Narrative Forms

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

I suppose it's pointless to review the course since the department is changing so much into a major and all, but in the event that Prof. Rosario continues after the transfer, I'll continue. She was a really great professor with good insights into our pieces. She had gave detailed comments on everything from our short stories to the smallest assignments and activities. She had interesting writing tips and character suggestions, and the assignments were really helpful--I ended up using two as jumping-off points for two stories. I enjoyed the class, and I'm pleased with the works I've written for it.

Workload:

Just one portfolio at the end of the semester with 3-4 stories or a novel excerpt. You are expected to have two or three pieces workshopped over the course of the semester and to comment on about three pieces by other students each week. Every other week or so, there is a small assignment due as well.
