..Immeasurable in terms of what i learned

“The week flew by and, for me, is immeasurable in terms of what I learned. Fred Leebron gives you a lot to think about and not just for the five days of the workshop; for the rest of your writing life. I’m already looking forward to next year!”

–  Phyllis “Maggie” Duncan

One Writer’s Workshop Experience

“…we had lots of time for individual attention to our manuscripts. I think I learned as much from my critique as I did from everyone else’s critique….On the whole, the workshop was very well organized, the food was great, and the particular class I attended was terrific. I made friends with several writers that I hope will remain friends or critique partners now that we have left the workshop – and I can’t wait for next year.”
