“This past weekend was an extraordinary experience for me. Although I had participated in the “Writing a Memoir” workshop before, I had a significantly more relaxed, more creative experience. The structure of this workshop really worked for me and I felt a clear direction towards a personal essay during the entire first day. I really appreciated the consideration of the important components of a personal essay and I thoroughly enjoyed diving into the essays of professionals. What I ended up writing about was something I have never shared before and that was quite a liberating experience. I felt incredibly strengthened and committed to continuing my journey as a writer. Thank you so much for inspiring me to write and thereby fueling my passion for writing. From the first workshop to the fifth, I have become stronger and stronger and more and more interested in the craft of writing.”
