OLC Content Creator, Luis Arce Diaz, shares how the lessons he learned though his Creative Writing courses helped him not only to become a better writer, but to find his own story through exposure to different perspectives on life and writing.
Welcome to the pilot episode of the OLC's newest podcast: Community Spotlight! In it, SFU students Luis and Chelsie interview students on campus about what makes their experience at University extraordinary, be it through studies, clubs, jobs, or any other thing big or small.
