I asked: What did you value most about the workshop?

  • “Verbalizing what my readers will learn from my story.”
  • “Good comments & tools from Teresa for moving forward.”
  • “Handouts so organized.”

Your next steps with your stories?

  • “Bring my stories out and start again—with your ideas for tools”
  • “Find a publisher.”
  • “Re-read my favorite novel & mark it up. Thank you, Teresa!”

My colleagues  (Catharine Bramkamp, Laurel Anne Hill, Antoinette May, Susan M. Osborn) also presented their writing workshops.
