Recent Student Testimonials
Gloria is an accomplished teacher with a well-organized curriculum. On top of that, she is a gentle and thoughtful giver of feedback. She is supportive and encouraging to all, and matches her level of critique to the level of the participant. I felt we were in the hands of a master and mentor, and it was a privilege to have her undivided attention eight times in two months.
Very useful and insightful! I appreciated Julia’s well researched, organized lectures.
Gloria teaches an excellent course on getting to know your characters in their psychological depths. Her course invites you to dig deeper in the dark and hidden corners of every character’s mind. The variety of techniques that Gloria uses to understand and teach characters are super!
I learned more about creative writing in this ten-week course than I have in the past two years.
This class packed an incredible punch. It has actually transformed my writing process by encouraging me to write along to music.
Susan’s feedback and promptness were very professional. Her lessons are packed with information and ideas. And, after the class was completed, she kept the site open for additional time to finish assignments, which I greatly appreciated. I look forward to interacting with her in another class!
The course material was excellent. It kept me engaged and learning throughout. This class was so helpful because it focused not just on individual poems but on seeing work (your own and others’) in terms of a collection. The class work and generous attention of the teacher were invaluable. I wish there were more classes like this!
Julie’s intuition, writing experience, and suggestions took me from a rough draft to a polished final draft with a stronger theme and structure. Her writing experience, spirit and open mind matched my temperament and validated what I was trying to do. Julie is great!
