Im going to read a part time (50%) university course on creative writing. The teacher is a published writer. I have been to a weekend seminar she held when I was teen, and from that experience and from friends that read this course before i know she will be an OK teacher at least or even a great teacher. The problem for me arises that the course is aimed at beginning level writers, that never picked up a pen and many of the exercises seem to be almost junior high level. 2 pages, maximum of writing on each exercise. With instruction as "Listing to music an inspire poetry." etc, which isn't really useful if you are a total noob. We will meet for 2 full days 1-2 a month, reviewing each others work. Hence the small size of the workload. I been writing for 3-8 hours a day the last 10 years. How do you think I should approach the course to get the most out of it?
