Testimonials

"The Writing Salon was so much more than a writing class. Not only did we have the opportunity to explore several challenges of the craft, but we were also given the time to practice new techniques, and receive immediate feedback. The experience was energetic, enthusiastic and supportive. I would highly recommend the Writing Salon for anyone who wants to develop their skills as a writer!" Kristine Torres

"The Writing Salon was such a great find for me. I have not written, just for the sake of writing, in years! But the online writing community our instructor, Laura Ehrke, created for us was informative, supportive and inspiring. I could hardly believe that an online class had such a feeling of community. A priority was finding ways to build Writing into our busy days/ weeks/ lives. We celebrated words, ideas, literature and expression. And I signed up for the next session." Georgianne Harms, Educator, Writer

"I enjoyed being part of the Writing Salon, a collaborative course that welcomes writers working in any genre. Instructor Laura Ehrke led the class with engaging lectures, writing exercises that expanded our comfort zone, and useful insights from her own considerable experience as a novelist. The Writing Salon also was a safe and respectful place for us to share our work, and get great feedback from classmates." Renee Coha
