“Thanks to you and
your class, “Getting Your Work Out There,” I am finally
submitting my work. Since I am a teacher, summer gives me most of my
free time and so my goal was to submit every one of my finished stories
by the end of the summer. Well, the last 3 went out in the mail today.

Thank you for that gift.”

felt, ‘why do a sculpture, or poem, or drawing if it’s not
good enough to display or sell.’… Your seminar opened the
door for me that there is a value … the exploration of me is a
‘productive’ use of time.”

so much because I feel totally safe there… your ideas are wonderful
springboards. My spirit is refreshed.”
“I had been having
difficulty starting on a project that I wanted to work on, which was
a series of essays for my daughter who is two, and because of the timed
writing I was able to actually get started on a piece that I was thrilled
with. I wouldn’t have been able to do it if it hadn’t been
for the class and the homework
assignment… and I just wanted to
say thank you .”
