Creative Writing, 5/18/20

Hello, dear students!

We’re almost finished with this, ah, shall we say, daunting semester! Just a few more things to work on before we’re through…

I’ve gotten dialogues from many of you, but I haven’t had time to look at them, which I’ll be doing this week.
Students are sending their Final Portfolios early to me, and while I totally commend them for being early, I’ve had multiple conversations with those who’ve not followed the instructions for naming the files.

Please save the PDF files exactly as I show in the Final Portfolio Assignment document.

ONE example: 1_Student Name, Final Reflection

And so on with the other files.

Put YOUR NAME in place of Student Name, but remember the # and the _.

This helps me grade more efficiently, and is something that’ll help your overall grade, because if you do not follow these instructions, I will take 10% off your Final Portfolio grade.

There are many other details to the Final Portfolio. If you haven’t already please look at this document I’ve prepared and posted on OpenLab.


I’ve been generous on deadlines this semester because of the situation we’ve all been through, but this deadline is real, folks, because I have to turn in grades soon after this date. 

If you don’t turn in a Final Portfolio by 11:59 PM on May 20, 2020, you’ll lose 250 points (this is worth 30% of your overall grade). 

Even if your Final Portfolio isn’t complete or as finished as you’d like, know that this is the agony of any writer–student or otherwise–we never feel it’s perfect, so submit what you’ve got by May 20!

If you have questions or concerns, contact me and we can talk during the class office hours (Monday and Wednesday, 11:30 AM – 1 PM). I can work in other times, but you’ll have to email me in advance.

Stay safe & well!
