  1. I didn’t have perfect attendance (shame on me!), but I checked out each and every lesson and downloaded each and every worksheet. Thank you for a fun and informative workshop, and thank you to the authors who shared their knowledge!

  3. I ended up having to monitor rather than participate fully this summer due to a couple of situations outside of my control. However I did peek in now and again, was able to share some writing prompts and tips with my daughter which led to some very fun shared experiences. But the very best part for me was the final webinar. OH. MY. GOSH! It was like getting to go backstage to my favorite show. Hearing the firsthand accounts and advice was invaluable! Thanks for making this happen. I look forward to every thing this group has to offer.
