>> “IT’S HARD TO EXPRESS WHAT A DIFFERENCE THE WRITERS STUDIO HAS MADE, not just in my writing, but in my life. The techniques you’re teaching us are such a practical, actionable way to express the ideas that used to get clobbered into silence by my inner critics. Your humor, insights, and encouragement have made a huge difference too.” - Karen McIntyre, Online Level I Student
