“I was initially concerned about getting emotionally overwhelmed when letting other people hear my work, but by doing a second draft of review for myself focusing on the techniques learned and not on the personal emotion that went into the first draft, I managed to distance myself from the thoughts and focus on the text.

My goal is to have a toolbox of different techniques that I can practice and choose from, depending on the story that I am interested in developing, and this workshop helped me do that.”
