Dr. Havazelet's short fiction workshops at OSU ('92) were the highlight of my college career. The classes were an intellectual boot camp and I can't compliment him enough for sharing his passion and attention to detail. If you weren't ready to commit 100%, you were in for a rude awakening. One time he brought Tim O'Brien to class to read "The Things They Carried."
Friends who took the workshops with me still joke, with great fondness, about how tough he was ("BUT WHAT'S AT STAKE?!") If one of us had a story workshopped that week, the others would take him out for a drink afterward to calm the nerves. What a fantastic professor, writing mentor and author! -Chris G, OSU '92
