WCDR-Sponsored Master Class Testimonials:

Shannon Webb-Campbell – A Unique Perspective and Approach to Subject Material

As an active poet, it’s always gratifying, not only to have the learning opportunity, but to have such a unique perspective and approach to the subject material. Shannon Webb-Campbell opened the door to all those usual topics – nature, relationships, joy/pain, legacy – and utilized her own work and that of poets I’d not met before to do it differently. Her indigenous roots helped us see the world (hence the world of words) in a new, ‘slanted’ way. – Barb Hunt

Eve Silver – The Perfect Marriage: Plot & Pacing

Eve Silver knows her business, and her tailored lessons demolished more than one roadblock in my current WIP. We distilled plot to a logline, then spun it out into a full three-act structure. Eve even offered everyone with on-the-spot, individualized critique of a short scene! Will definitely be on the lookout for more workshops of this calibre!  – Anne MacLachlan

Alissa York – Inspiration, Perspiration, Celebration!

“…Organized, thoughtful and wonderfully helpful!”

“Very engaging, respectful, and gave good information.”

“The biggest plus was learning from an author – someone who’s been through it all.”
