I thoroughly enjoyed the class conducted by Michelle. She was really encouraging and patient with us. It was my first time writing fiction but she put me at ease by breaking down the process beautifully. The most interesting parts of the class for me were the explanation of topics using published stories followed by writing exercises which allowed us to put that learning to use. For example, the skill of showing vs telling.  Thank you for putting this course together. Look forward to participating in many more. I also appreciate the format and duration of the program as it was easy for me to accommodate it during my working hours.
