“I would recommend others attend this workshop—if only to get into the mindset of writing and meet like-minded, friendly people who can help you get out of your own head. I went from seeing editing as “losing authenticity” to embracing it as a necessary part of the creative endeavor; I even had fun editing! I acquired foundational knowledge of different skills not limited to editing, and I learned to break down writing into its finer details—and how to analyze and improve my pieces.”
