—Jaime Bitzenhofer, Cincinnati, OH”Thank you so much for a great workshop this weekend. For me, so much of learning how to write fiction has been a process of doing it wrong (at least once) and heading down side roads that go nowhere and take hours, days, weeks . . . I feel like you’ve given me a map, which will definitely make the journey easier.” —Sally Bayless
“This weekend was great and had the perfect information that I needed as an amateur writer to understand the options to get my manuscript to the right readers. I have always written as a hobby but it is a secret of mine. The idea of finding an agent and/or publisher seemed daunting and arbitrary. After this weekend, I am prepared to cut through the red tape to find an agent and additionally online/self-publishing appeals as an ideal place to dabble, test, and have fun—and completely risk-free.
I wasn’t disappointed on any anticipated outcomes AND I got a lot more on some areas that I kind of wrote off unknowingly. You were very impressive. Your ability to hear the question behind the question showed that you understood what we thought/wanted and you gave diplomatic and useful answers, the kind that provoked positive and progressive action.”
—Lisa Arnopp, Fayetteville, AR”I want to send a thank-you note to Zac for his help at the one-on-one. I will never be able to really express the jolt of confidence he gave me. I was about to abandon ship altogether. Thanks again for everything. I am pressing on, have a completed first revised draft, re-reading again, and have my book club lined up to be beta testers—and this is all because of your workshop.”
