Karen is humble, but don't be fooled. She is an academic, and a professional writer. If you really want to learn to be a better writer, take a personal writing class with her. Listen to her suggestions/feedback because they will help you indefinitely.

She lectures well when it is about something she is passionate about. She discusses topics that are inappropriate and occasionally says things that cross students comfort boundaries.

Karen is an absolute sweetheart. She is a lovely teacher, very kind and accommodating. She is probably the best english teacher I've had. We only had 3 major papers(they were small) and no final examination.

Karen was absolutely AMAZING! She's such a sweetheart and is always willing to give you extra feedback. Weekly quizzes on textbook topics are easy grades as long as you read the chapter!

Took her Creative Writing class and found so many amazing skills I was able to build off of. Projects are very open and gave me a lot of options to what I wanted to do. Taking more of classes and can't wait. Highly recommend her as a professor.

Comment:
Karen is quirky, upbeat lady. If you don't like group work/being chosen to speak in class, you may not enjoy her teaching style. However, she does an excellent job at making you feel like your input is relevant and worthwhile, which is helpful if you're shy. Offers fair/constructive criticism and tips. Expect about one quiz and/or paper a week.

I was not looking forward to this class, and honestly I hated it. However, she is an excellent teacher and I did actually improve my writing but BEWARE: SHE WILL PICK ON YOU IF YOU DO NOT PARTICIPATE.

I was really not looking forward to this class, and to be honest it's still my least favourite class. I've learnt a lot though, Karen's a really good teacher and provides lots of feedback on everything. If you don't participate in class discussions she may pick on you, but that's mostly just the people who aren't paying attention.

Comment:
Took ADVANCED creative writing and spent the entire class on BASICS. Showed blatant favoritism for specific writing and gave way better marks to the flowery, wordy writers. I've never had below an A- on any cw assignment; this time, regardless of my effort, straight B's on everything. Waste of time/money if you have ever taken a cw class before.

Very nice teacher. She pretty much lets us do our own thing in class and gives us credit for it. We spend one class a week in small writing groups where we listen to each others' work and offer criticism.Good unless you'd rather pay to hear her teach rather than do group work.

Karen is a dream. She's always excited and always willing to help you get through your writing. She even offers to help you figure out how to get published if that's what you want. Her classes and perspectives are amazing and if you ever want creative writing take it from Karen. She's so nice to all her students.
