"Fabulous teacher and info was helpful!"

"The teacher. Her dedication and enthusiasm."

"I liked the size of the group and your knowledge and ability to share it. Nice job Nancy"

"I liked the writing prompts. It made it clear that almost any situation could be adopted into a story."

"Enjoyed being in company of other writers interested in same activity, similar goals, etc - but mostly with a teacher working on specific skills."

"Nancy's amazing expertise & knowledge & approach! Being able to write in class too."

"I enjoyed the discussion about the stories we read."

"I liked the exercises and Nancy is just great."

The review on the structure was helpful for me, especially since i am in the middle of a book now.

"The small group made it easy to get a lot out of the class."

"The class was well designed from start to finish with each activity part of a whole."

"Hearing how others interpreted the stories."
