Elayne was well-organized, providing time for everyone in the class to participate. With Elayne’s encouragement, participants of the class shared their writing freely and, in turn, offered constructive, positive encouragement to others.

Elayne’s writing prompts were great for making us think about writing in ways we might not otherwise have done.
