The best online course I've had for memoir. In five years of taking writing workshops, Jessica's class was the hands on and specifics I'd been looking for. Classes in the past had too much time spent on feedback for the work of others and not enough time spent on building skills with exercises specific for that part of writing."

"I learned so much from the Personal Essay Writing Bootcamp! I have more tools in my writer's work box, which has also given me greater confidence. I'm inspired to go deeper with my feelings and my writing."

    I’m VERY INTERESTED in taking this class, but not quite ready for the one in 2 weeks. When is the next one?

  2. Melanie says:

    I’m curious as to how the online setup works. I registered (Yay!) awhile ago but have not received any information. Are there certain times we will need to be at the computer for instruction or is it all done via email? Thanks!

    The best online course I’ve had for journal. In five years of taking written work workshops, Jessica’s class was the hands on and specifics I’d been searching for. Classes in the past had a lot of time spent on input for the work of others and insufficient time went through on building abilities with activities particular for that a portion of composing.

    The best online course I’ve had for diary. In five years of taking composed work workshops, Jessica’s class was the hands on and specifics I’d been scanning for. Classes in the past had a ton of time spent on data for the work of others and lacking time experienced on building capacities with exercises specific for that a bit of making.

      If these two weren’t written by the same person, I’ll buy you dinner. I was heavily leaning toward taking this course until I read the twin sisters below.
