This was an adequate course. She surveys many examples of essays by different writers. How to become the next E.B. White? This course will not help you all that much. I would suggest the Teaching Company course Writing Great Sentences which overlaps this course and provides better insight into crafting beautiful prose. If you are hoping to take either of these courses in an attempt to become a better writer, I would strongly recommend first reading cover-to-cover any edition of Williams' book Style: Toward Clarity and Grace, which is the single most helpful resource I have yet to encounter from among the many books and handbooks I have read or reviewed over the years.
