PRAISE FOR ANDREA’S REVISION WORKSHOPS:

 

Your class is terrific -- not just your knowledge and rich understanding of how good writing works, but how you draw people along growing their own skills, and your deep presence and welcoming kindness. 

— Ann Gronvold

 

Your edits are remarkable.  The flow and crispness of the sentences are much improved (even with the little changes). You are magical.  — Bob Healey

 

Great class! I learn something valuable at every meeting. (From all the discussions, not just mine.) I really love the way you put out your thoughts, but also bounce off and expand on our thoughts. You have created more than a class. You have created a community. — Travis Darcy
