Student Quotes
"This course was nothing short of an incredible experience. Different than anything I've ever experienced."
- Lori Cohen
"Challenging, motivating, inspiring."
- Allen Wahl
"I rode the train home scribbling ideas in a notebook. The next morning I got up and wrote another chapter of an easy-reader book I'm experimenting with. As I wrote, I thought about all I'd learned in class about character development, believable dialogue, confict and resolution, and making the whole thing interesting to a youngster. I can't think of a better investment of my time than to spend a Saturday in this class!"
