People who have taken the inspirational writing class in the past say:
“I received more information through Linda and this class than I could possibly have imagined. – Sherry
I was very impressed that Linda took the time to meet outside of class with every student. She was extremely organized and thorough. I’m leaving with a wealth of information for when I’m ready for it. Thank you.”
“This class exceeded my expectations. The instructor was excellent and really had a great teaching style. I felt I learned more about the genre, where and how to get published, and I also gained valuable knowledge with ‘how-to’ tips from an experienced writer.”
