"... even more than the wonderful tips and checklist and exercises, this workshop taught us how to discipline ourselves, which I love. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

"I did learn some of the little tidy ends which as a novice didn't realize the importance of "don't does" in writing novels."

"Great workshop!I will be recommending it to my writer friends."

"This has been a wonderful workshop! I'm already recomending it to a few of my writer friends."
