Make Your Writing Dreams Come True! Learn from Poet, Essayist and Author Sheila Bender

“I have been working with Sheila for 10 years. I will say this: she is the best writing instructor I’ve ever had and I’ve been studying writing with many different instructors for about 45 years. She never makes you feel as if you have failed with a writing and should just give up. She gives you positive encouraging feedback with specific concrete suggestions for improvement and extension. I think everyone should give her classes a try.” ~ Elizabeth Marie Wampler
