I though it was ok. I struggle with writing, so this course was somewhat difficult. It's basically removing all the fluff words you use in writing to make the word count higher. It's a class where it is easy to lose points in your writing. Just proofread a lot before you submit. Also, make sure you start the assignments early because there is peer review. Peer reviews were usually Wednesday and the final assignment was do Sunday night for my workshop period.
Writing is a useful skill. You're kind of roleplaying in these assignments as you are given a scenario and you need to write it with all the skills you've learned so far. Good class if you want your writing to be more professional.
Trainor was entertaining in lecture. He does a kahoot every class to take attendance and to help review the concepts from the weekly videos. I had M. Lee as my workshop professor and she is clear with what she expects. Grading is slow, but I think that's common with the other TAs as well. She goes through your writing and points out everything that needs to be revised. Make sure you proofread everything so you don't lose easy points.
If you want to win the kahoot, watch the week's lectures before class.
