“Thanks for the wonderful workshop, which was both inspirational and practical. I learned a lot, from how to how to get started to how to structure a short. I was also very happy to have used the freewriting method. Although I’ve tried it before, I never approached it in a systematic way: giving oneself a limited amount of time, emptying one’s mind, and letting the words flow. I found it a very efficient – and enjoyable – way to draft a short story.
