Student Feedback for Elisa

Elisa’s worldbuilding course helped me work through a lot of important aspects of my fictional world with detailed, thought-provoking prompts, making my worldbuilding process more organized and efficient. Elisa provided plenty of feedback on the assignments, and pointed me to genres, concepts, and stories particular to my world that are helping me further clarify what I want my world and story to be like.

Elisa is an outstanding teacher. She is encouraging and empathetic. Her lessons and feedback were very clear and helpful, and the assignments were outstanding for working on building skills as well as practical applications to my story. I’m excited to take another class with her. Kathy Keats

Highly recommend this course to any and every writer. This is the course that I needed to take. The exercises/assignments were exactly what I have been meaning to do prior to this class but by taking this class I forced myself to do it with fantastic results. I wish this course was a ten-week course. Absolutely fantastic amazingly supportive teacher who really cares for their students and pushes them forward in a motivated and creative way. Karin Reimondos
