Great class for the content I needed. I audited this class and benefited from the theory discussion and practical exercises. The class guided me to improve my writing style which was my ultimate goal.
Lessons were well done, good mix of teaching and illuminating discussion between accomplished writers. Exercises are creative and well thought out. Feedback from classmates is generally helpful.

Had a lot of fun Took a little more time than I anticipated but it was good practice and good for practicing and pushing my writing a bit (I was getting rusty...).

Very focused on specific skills needed to write more vividly and effectively. Not a general telling, a doing. Enjoyed the assignments designed to get you there.

Salvatore Scibona is awesome!
His enthusiasm is infectious. I've learned a lot of new techniques. More importantly, I've started to think differently about prose.
