  • “What’s most usable in my day-to-day writing life: the joy/energy/engagement of these two days. If you go for it, you can accomplish a lot in two days. I would like to keep this momentum.

    I had a lovely weekend, thank you for the care and attention.”

  • “This workshop reinforced the need to be just as specific in nonfiction writing as in fiction—and to use fiction techniques across the board. The class also inspired me to write, write, write! I learned more about how to identify focus in my work, and how to avoid editing as I go.”

  • “I learned about resources for writing nonfiction narratives and studied how some master of nonfiction use those resources. On the one hand, the course helped me to understand what my strengths are and what areas I need work. On the other hand, the class broadened my understanding of point of view. Above all, the class has motivated me to continue producing.

    The workshop was a transformative experience as well as entertaining from beginning to end. Besides writing better than before I started it, I had a great time. The instructor has a special talent for combining teaching and entertainment. The pace of the workshop, the knowledge communicated, and the questions and comments on each of our texts—all of this was very constructive and relevant. I look forward to attending the next workshop.”

  • “In terms of the instructor, be prepared to meet a professional—both as a writer, and as a trainer—with decades of experience. For two days I basked in knowledge; ready-to-apply approaches; tips; technical information; and related anecdotal examples. It was a mix of boosted learning, entertainment, and an absolutely positive nudge to be creative and professional…. The instructor knows what she is doing. And so will you.”

  • “This was my first ‘creative’ writing class, ever. It taught me that writing takes time and focus. A lot of both. It’s a basic lesson, but over and over again I find myself surprised by the amount of time and energy one needs to produce a page that doesn’t make you want to dip your laptop into a pot of boiling acid…The class specifically taught me about the ways of storytelling that I absorb and enjoy on a daily basis.”
