Humor Writing: “Pamela is a gem!”

It was packed with information, inspiration and encouragement. Pamela is a wonderful teacher. She nurtured everyone in the humor writing class!

“I was so high after this class that I went home and wrote until 4 AM! Still exhausted but so worth it.”- Liz K

“…I’ve already gotten my money’s worth!…”

Hi Suzy,

Thanks so much for the comments on my Picky Eater piece from last week’s Personal Essay class. I reworked it with your feedback, submitted it to KQED Perspectives, and — drum roll — I’m going in to record it on Monday! Thank god the editor there has a niece who is a picky eater, I think it spoke to him. Anyways I’m very excited and gratified. I’ll let you know when it’s going to play.

And — the piece on the Christmas Baby got picked up by Silicon Mom this week for their December issue!

Needless to say I feel like I’ve already gotten my money’s worth out of your class. Thanks so much for all the energy and publication ideas!

Lisa Alpine: Travel Writing; Your Writer’s Toolbox

Dear Lisa,

Just wanted to drop a note and tell you how invigorated I  was by your workshop on Saturday. Despite the fact that I’ve been a professional writer (staff and freelance) off and on for some 25 (!) years, I have found myself in the doldrums lately as I try to redesign my life. Besides enjoying your energy and humor, I really appreciated the concrete tips on everything from vivid writing to drumming up business. You certainly packed a lot into a one-day  class. It made me feel that it *is* possible to do some of  the things I’ve dreamed of.

I ran right home and registered a web domain name, and plan to follow through on the “assignments” you gave us over the next few weeks, between freelance odd jobs, personal writing, mothering, and housekeeping… I already have a writers’ group (newly formed from  another Writing Salon class) and basic journalism experience–I just need to put my ideas into action.

Many thanks again!
Jennifer Dix
