"I just want to thank Sara for today’s brilliant workshop on creative writing. I have always had in the back of my mind that I should write stories and I joined the workshop just out of curiosity. Sara was wonderful, I can’t believe how much she packed into 1.5 hour. It was a lot more than what I hoped for, my mind has been buzzing with ideas, reignited the excitement about the stories I was working on and now I have a structure to work my ideas into an actual draft of a book. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience."
