The workshop gave me the boost I needed and took so little time, too. I was able to use the writing prompts later and all the info we covered was informative and inspirational. I was brimming over with writing energy after the class was over. I am definitely doing this again and would highly recommend it to anyone at any age…. I was highly impressed.
