Fall 2012 Workshops at The Writers’ Room

“I have learned [in this class that] I am probably wiser about things than I was allowed to believe about myself as a child… I love the structure of this class — the prompts give me focus and purpose for what follows. The prompts send me places I didn’t intend to go or didn’t know existed in my mind.

I have felt honored to participate in Joanna’s workshops, and have gained confidence in my writing and trust in my own inner voice.Susan, “Voice Quest” participant

    • You can always offer feedback in whatever format you prefer. I don’t have an evaluation form if that’s what you were thinking.
