Why did you first sign up for Write of Passage?

I signed up for WOP because I knew I wanted to write but wasn’t sure I knew how. I had spent my entire life saying I hated writing. May have been a defense mechanism so my kids had to write their own stuff. But they conned me into typing for them.

What did you like most about the course?  

What I liked most was the community and getting to know others around the world. Secondly, I liked the regular affirmations that we are all unique and could share our writings. Lastly, the course techniques, practice, and rationale were stupendous.

What’s your #1 takeaway or lesson learned from WoP?

What’s your #1 takeaway or lesson learned from WoP? My #1 takeaway is that all of us can write. Each of us is a unique human being with our own point of view to share.

What surprised you about the course?

The breadth of the content.

 How has Write of Passage impacted your creative output?

I tend to write longer articles, depending on the topic. As I go through the next cohort, I want to improve and better understand long form writing.

What advice would you give to a new Write of Passage student? 

Go into the course with an open mind. Know you can write. And mostly, remember writing is about sharing your ideas not being grammatically correct.

Any final thoughts or recommendations about the course?

This is an amazing course that teaches you about writing in a way we were not taught in school.
