Testimonials

“From the first class I took with Laura, I knew that she had the skill to help me get to the next level. Thanks to her perceptive observations and suggestions, I’ve now been published in More and Self magazines, the Christian Science Monitor, and several anthologies, and am currently working on a memoir. How wonderful it is to find someone with a great critical sense and the ability to communicate what works and what doesn’t in a constructive way. I feel lucky to have met Laura.”
–Anne-Christine Strugnell, San Rafael, CA

“Laura helped jump-start my writing brain and shape the finished product, taking me to new levels of stylistic elegance. Her guidance certainly contributed to my piece being accepted by a major literary magazine. Having her in my life as a teacher, editor and guide has provided a huge boost to my success as a writer.”
