Abbe Goldman's class blew away most of the classes I've taken during my time at UCLA. This class dramatically improved my writing skills and helped me understand best practices for clear and concise writing.

Goldman issues about one assignment per week, which she grades anonymously. DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO WORK ON THESE. Abbe is a very experienced editor and can tell if you didn't work on the assignment until the last day.

The class was interesting during lecture, rigorous in grading and overall a really well-balanced 10 weeks. I would absolutely recommend taking this class for anyone interested in communications, PR, journalism or really any job that requires writing and working with others. Abbe is a terrific journalist and professor, and UCLA is pretty lucky to have her.

Professor Goldman is an amazing professor and this class is unlike any other I've taken at UCLA. It's a small seminar so she can really teach us how to write. As a comm major, I wish more classes in the communications department were like this -- practical skills for journalists. And the professor was truly there to help us learn.

It's intense because you're writing an article each week, but anyone interested in journalism or writing should take this class. It hones your skills and makes you think about each word you use.

She uses anonymous grading which was fair (and great because the class is really about improving yourself so it's nice to know where you stand). I went to her office hours a lot and it was SUPER helpful to read her my work. She's welcoming to students and really cares about our learning.

Goldman is a great professor and really knows what she's talking about, especially concerning writing/journalism. This was probably one of the most practical classes I've taken at UCLA - I feel like I can apply this knowledge outside of the classroom. The whole class is based on refining your writing, which can be useful for anyone. She is very funny and although the grading on the writing can be harsh, she is fair and does it with the intention of helping you learn and grow. There was about one assignment per week, assigned on Mondays and due on Wednesdays, in addition to relatively light reading assignments. Definitely take this class if you want to improve your writing.
