“The biggest thing I learned is how important all of the senses are when doing any kind of writing, particularly travel writing. It occurred to me that all my favorite travel pieces appeal to the senses as a means of transporting me into the piece. I also learned that I can come up with some good writing pretty quickly by just bolting it out with pen and paper.

I was very surprised at the organization and pacing of the class. It was exactly what I needed to whip my writing into shape.”
