“I learned the mechanics/elements critical to writing a successful short story.
I learned that it takes discipline and commitment. And that writing is similar to a muscle: you have to use it or lose it.
And I really enjoyed the structure of the workshop, appreciated the discipline and organization. I felt we had a lot of freedom to write whatever we wanted to—with no worries about a harsh critique. At the same time, the writing and topics we covered were managed very well. Really well done!”
