This will
be the best writing class you’ve ever taken.  Your grade is based on class
participation, attendance, a speech, quiz average, and your 5 best
essays.  Save all handouts, class notes, drafts, and final papers
for presentation at semester’s end.  Your portfolio of these works,
organized with a table of contents, will show your commitment to earn an A
grade for this course.  If you wish, you may buy (or not—the purchase is
optional) this one book: THE WRITER’S BOOK OF WISDOM.  You will create
your own book as well, the portfolio.  Heavy focus on editing.  All
who enroll must pledge to do A-quality work.  Strictly limited enrollment.
