Randy Susan Meyers
Student Feedback for Randy
Meyers is a phenomenal teacher. She is so welcoming and encouraging and generous with her time and materials. This was by far the best class I’ve ever taken. I have a concrete set of handouts and detailed critiques of my story to refer to as I write. I would take another class with Meyers in a heartbeat.
Randy is a very talented writer and she is able to teach what she has learned in a manner that is easy to understand. She also offers exercises which strengthen and underscore her lessons.
Randy Susan Meyers was organized, attentive, and presented very relevant, helpful information in the class. She shared her expertise with humor and clarity. Ms Meyers was also generous with her time, offering us the option of submitting our rewritten paragraphs to her for feedback outside of class time. She gave us a lot to think about during the workshop, as well as provided hefty handouts to learn from and absorb in the weeks ahead.
…My writing will benefit from Randy’s seasoned suggestions and emphatic pleas. Thank you!
Terrific instructor – tells it like it is. Lots of applicable tips, made great use of available time.
The class was thoughtfully structured and presented in all ways. The handouts and pre-class prep paved the way for a fast-paced and productive class. The step-by-step approach is a good one for me. Now I know what I have to work on! I also appreciated the “don’t be the jerk” commentary up front. Good boundaries make good classes. Asking in the end about “take-aways” helped me nail more learning down. Thank you!
She spelled it out really well. She asked us a series of specific questions as to what we have or don’t have at hand for the novel construction. “What’s your story?, What’s your dramatic question? your central belief? your character’s crucible?” also lots of links, books, strategies, & a follow up checklist. I think I could write a novel from these 3 hours. I myself am incapable of grasping anything at all abstract, so “inciting incident,’ for example, and “rising action” don’t conjure the pictures I need. This did. Great class.
Randy is very intentional and organized. She doesn’t waste a second and I’m grateful.
The class was engaging and the instructor interacted in discussions and with each participant, providing some great ideas and plenty of time for questions. A great experience!
