This course changed the way I think about writing. Julie provided great material, constructive comments, and valuable insights that really helped me to find my voice and have more fun with it. At a time when we all spend too much time online, this course on humor writing provided a refreshingly unique “learning bubble.”

Susan is a truly gifted teacher, whose presence and generous spirit create a safe environment in which to write and share freely. I appreciate her openness, the lack of judgement, and her willingness always to share her own writing. Lovely circle!
Excellent class! This was my second time taking it, and I learned just as much the second time around.
Rosemary is brilliant, engaged, gives both inline and general feedback and even includes audio feedback for tackling certain problems in your writing. I learned where my writing belongs and in what genre I was able to write. Rosemary is an inspiring teacher; I’ll be delighted to take another of her classes.
Rosemary was absolutely outstanding. Her lesson materials were detailed and in-depth with lots of additional outside references for self-study. She was very encouraging, yet pushed me to be a better writer in specific and helpful ways. Rosemary took my writing to a new level and I’d highly recommend her to anyone wanting to improve, especially with an eye to publishing. I can’t wait to work with her again!
I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge presented by this course. We delved into several formal structures of English poetry and were expected to refine our focus in order to create within these structures. David is very professional and knowledgeable about the structure of poetry. It was a great experience.
This class stretched my knowledge. David Mills teaches beyond expectations. This is not a class for the casual attendee but extremely worthwhile for the attentive poet. I am still processing his remarks given to each student. He gave dynamite suggestions!
Rosemary’s feedback was prompt, copious and direct. She was very honest with her comments without being harsh or negative. Her enthusiasm was contagious and she continuously pushed me to grow and get better. I was also blown away by the breadth and depth of the lectures and associated learning material. Rosemary’s resources will offer me months if not years of further study.
Barbara is a terrific teacher. The reading materials were well chosen, the writing prompts were inspiring, the pace was perfect. Barbara’s feedback on assignments were thorough and thoughtful. I was very impressed!
Excellent experience. Barbara is a very knowledgeable and capable teacher and critic. While just a beginning writer, even I could feel that my writing had improved significantly.
