Comment:
Kate isn't too open minded but stresses a lot on structure. Structure IS important in any story, it essentially makes the story. She gave a lot of feedback, which is what I liked most. Very nice woman and very comfortable, chill class.

I took her five years ago but in retrospect realize how awful she is. She shamed me in front of the whole class for wearing red lipstick amongst other condescending and demeaning interactions. Horrible and insecure person.

Comment:
Frankly, I didn't jive with her obsession with form and structure, particularly as a lot of what I write falls under the category of "experimental lit" - like all teachers in a creative department, how useful they can be to you can vary depending upon your own artistic output and outlook - but it helps if they're more versatile. Sterns is not.

Comment:
For a graduate level course I was surprised that the readings we used were all basic, high school level; I was introduced to nothing new. Required work was minimal, her interest was lacking & she did not even show up to class one day. An unfortunate waste of time; I did little work for a high grade.

Comment:
She's intelligent and has some good comments, but it's a very "traditional" class. In other words, you'll focus entirely on how your stories fit into the common story arc, and not really anything else. She's not very good at trying to figure out what each person is going for, just tries to stuff you into the story structure. It was boring.

Comment:
Kate is a great teacher. She's not the easiest marker, sometimes a little too strict for her own good, but she values work that is well done, and who can blame her! She forces you to go one mile further, and in that way she motivates you to hand in your best work. Had her twice, and enjoyed it a lot!

Comment:
I think about %40 of the mark for this class was reserved for participation. Considering how much time goes into the creative process of writing, and there is a good deal of it in this class, one would think that there would be a more reflective balance of grade break-down.

Yes, to Kate! Great teacher, smart and, although she tries to hide it, she has a great frame.
