“I learned what makes a novel work, how to create setting, a unique voice, and apply specific devices to create compelling characters. Lastly, but Maybe most important, I learned about following my own literary intuition. The workshop gave me more insight into my own reasons for wanting to write. It felt good to be amongst peers and to hear about the struggles we all experience; it made me feel less isolated. I think the instructor a great teacher and particularly liked the way she helped us understand how the novel works. I also enjoyed hearing the different contributions.”
