"This was one of the most enjoyable and expertly directed classes I have ever taken. I look forward to being in one of this instructor's classes again."
- Sebastian Mondrone
 Teacher
"The instructor's lectures were well crafted, and he expanded on his ideas throughout the week. The notebook assignments were extremely useful in fleshing out the characters in my book, and establishing a trigger for their conduct in my plot. But above all that, his comments on my work were stellar, he helped me to understand what I was writing, and motivated me to keep going."
