“…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!

“…I highly recommend her class!”

Dear Jane,

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed taking Personal Essays on Saturdays from Suzy Parker. Not only is she a fun and funny person, but she is extremely knowledgeable. Her classes were well organized with a lot of variety. We always started with a warm-up which got the creativity flowing and she provided copies (usually crappy ones–ha!) of a variety of writing types which tied to the topic we were writing about at the time.

Suzy pushed me in directions I may not have thought about with my writing, and I appreciate that shove. She gave good feedback on critiques and was generous with her sources, and encouraging in her efforts to get us to publish, publish, publish. She is a down to earth person, and we all felt very comfortable in the writing group, mostly because she made is so easy to be there. The time flew by each Saturday…I’ll miss it this coming week. I highly recommend her class!
