In this class we read current authors and they came in to discuss their works. Lee's teaching style was warm, loose and insightful. He knows his writing and he KNOWS literature. He's a warm man who does not waste words. I recommend him highly, especially for English Majors focusing in Creative Writing.

If you're serious about writing, you'll be well served to at least listen to what he has to say. He can be harsh, but his feedback is genuine. Most of his feedback comes through class discussion-- don't expect extensive notes or comments on your manuscript. I found him to be a warm, funny guy with a profound understanding of how story works.

Makes you comfortable in a workshop, very talented, very interesting take on looking at/dissecting different story concepts/constructs. Fun to have in a classroom period. Looked forward to this class all quarter- I'm not a class-goer typically. Reminded me of why I want to become a writer. Amazing handling of language, even in speech.

A brilliant writer and editor and funny guy. As a teacher, though, he's typical for OSU English: doesn't teach so much as judge what you do. His comments were often insightful, even if he plays favorites in the classroom.
