"The instructor was very organized and was able to include an amazing amount of information in four 90-minute classes. There wasn't a wasted minute!  Also, the instructor was very supportive. He made each student feel like they could be/already were a successful writer. He also made sure that everyone in the class knew that it was important to be supportive of each other."-Crafting CompellingCharacter participant
