  • “It’s really hard to sum up such a wonderful workshop: two days packed with mentoring, exercises, “working out” with open-minded people in a humbling and friendly atmosphere. The workshop reinforced my motivation to write. Thank you for the mentoring.”

  • “I found out about ways to start writing and keep writing every day. This was a revelation for me. I particularly liked hearing all of the different ‘voices’ and the variety of styles. It gave me a lot to think about and to experience.”

  • “It was really helpful to (re-)discover that sometimes you need very little to get started. I also thoroughly enjoyed hearing all the pieces that people had written—and discussing various story techniques.”

  • “I learned that writing it down is just the beginning of a more elaborate process of refining thoughts, of patching together a larger narrative. I was also reminded to be flexible with what I write: just because you start with it, doesn’t mean it has to be the beginning of your text.
    Throughout the two days, there was so much live information, from the instructor, and from everyone else in the class. Great workshop experience, but intense! The amount of generously imparted information came as a surprise :)”

  • “I learned how to make the most of the time I have available for writing:
    • How to organize and use all my notes and all the writing that I used to consider “a waste.”
    • How to create a writing habit.
    • How to be more efficient with my writing.
    Lisa is an amazing mentor, and it’s always great to attend her workshops.”

    Maria, March 27, 2017

  • “I discovered that I was associating writing with work rather than with the creative process. Now I’ve synchronized writing with the creative process.

    What were the highlights of the two days? I gave myself permission to write, and I became hopeful during the process.”

  • “The workshop facilitator was superb, extremely knowledgeable in her subject matter. Furthermore, she utilised every single bit of feedback from the participants and wove the information into the learning programme. No comment was ever ignored or rejected. In short, this made the workshop extremely motivating and engaging.”

    Sue, March 27, 2017

  • “Unashamedly, the highlight was the feedback session on the writing I was asked to produce. I learned that I have a writing voice that people respond really positively to (and I needed to know that). It was extremely valuable—it gave me confidence and impetus to carry on.”
