What my students say:

“I don’t usually show people what I’ve written so getting such good feedback was important to me.”

“The most important part of the class for me was feeling inspired to keep making progress on my projects in and out of class.”

“I felt motivated to write and absorb feedback. And the lectures and exercises made me a better writer.”
