I'll make this short, since I'm doing ok in creating this curriculum for the upcoming school year. I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything! I'd like to hear from teachers and students in this one.... and teachers as former students... and students as future teachers... and... hehe. What do you think absolutely needs to be covered in a creative writing course? Do you have any lesson plans or methods that work particularly well for a certain topic? Students, what have you done in creative writing classes that you've enjoyed or that have helped you develop as writers. Now that I think about it... writers should chime in too! Where's Irvine? It'd be great to hear from a published writer about what he thinks people should know.
