If you want to use any of this material contact me and there is a very good chance I will say YES.
However, if you just cut and paste into your own blog or whatever and pass it off as your own then there's a very good chance I will find out. Don't fall into the trap of thinking the internet is so vast and expanding so fast (note the fancy internal rhyme)] that no one will know.
Just read your post on Michelle’s blog. It was lovely and a reminder to me that it is the one who is leading the teaching that will make the difference for a student. I’ve taken lots of different classes (traditional writing, online, snail-mail correspondence) with different instructors. In general, the feedback I get from other students as well as the instructor can be priceless, but the cream is where the instructor actually cares and loves writing and working with students.
Thank you for all your nice comments. I do agree that the tutor’s attitude and enthusiasm is very important but creative writing courses are also a very collaborative experience because we all learn so much from each other.
