Kelly’s class was incredibly useful. She introduced a number of ways to effectively break through perceived creative blocks; tap into unconscious writing superpowers; and stimulate those atrophying writing muscles with great exercises, homework, and lectures. I didn’t feel overwhelmed; on the contrary, I looked forward to doing the assignments. I felt like—yes!—this woman really really gets what goes on in the mind of the writing creative. A big bonus: my writing confidence has gone up! Thank you, Kelly! ~Elana G.
The exercises Kelly provided were great and I plan to use them for a long time to come! ~Barbara B.
