I am set to begin a master’s degree in creative writing, so I need to start concentrating on that.  This workshop was exactly what I needed as a prerequisite.  It has boosted my confidence, revealed many weaknesses that can now be worked on, and let me meet women from all over, which I found very thrilling.  Being a teacher can feel very isolating sometimes, so interaction with everyone else in the class was spectacular for me.  I learned an incredible amount from you and appreciate all your words and lessons very much.
