Had a lot of fun Took a little more time than I anticipated but it was good practice and good for practicing and pushing my writing a bit (I was getting rusty...).

Very focused on specific skills needed to write more vividly and effectively. Not a general telling, a doing. Enjoyed the assignments designed to get you there.

Salvatore Scibona is awesome!

His enthusiasm is infectious. I've learned a lot of new techniques. More importantly, I've started to think differently about prose.

I thought the videos were excellent and the interviews of great value. I always download the text, create a .docx, and follow the videos word-for-word.
