Dear Gotham,

I just wanted to thank Gotham Writers for teaching me the basics of writing and the steps needed to make it work.

My interest was perked when I read that Gotham Writers would sponsor a free class for people who wanted to write. I went to the bookstore in Manhattan and met a group of 20 people in attendance. Susan Breen, the teacher, introduced herself and spoke about the passions of writing.

I signed up for regular Gotham class, Fiction I Then I went on to take Novel II.

Several years later, I am proud to report that my first novel has been published by Dreams Publishing Company—a fantasy entitled The Journey of Mary/Ma Li. I also had a horror short story, “The Taxi,” published by Necrology Shorts.

Thank you again for making my dreams come true!
