They can't even include the notebook for that price?

This is a real writing course offered at a New York-area university you would recognize by name. Goldberg wept:

Paying $165 to do this kind of exercise supervised, no matter how useful it is, is completely bonkers. I would never discourage anyone from taking a writing class if s/he wanted to, but if you are seriously considering this, maybe we can work something out in the "fancy cup of coffee" price range.

Borders is now selling their Moleskine-style notebooks for $3.99 on clearance. Couldn't they buy about 100 of those and pass them out for free? Think of how much more writerly all of those students would feel!
