What was your intent in signing up for the BWW? Would you say your intent was met?
Intent was to figure out if I could write / like to write. And meet some amazing people. Mission complete.

What were your key take-aways from the workshop? Which of the sessions/discussions/topics covered did you find most beneficial to you?
The key take-aways were looking at things from a reader’s point of view and how to polish a piece to make it read-worthy. Every feedback session , whether mine or someone else’s was eye-opening. It was also crucial to learn that everyone has different opinions and it isn’t possible to please all the readers.

Are there any other topics/methods you would like incorporated in the workshop?
The first workshop in Page turners had the exercise of putting yourself in someone else’s shoes. That was incredibly interesting and would have liked it if it was in the extended workshop too.

How would you rate your Facilitators? Please give specific feedback to both.

I really cannot think of rating the two of you. You’re both absolutely fabulous and have very complimentary skills and thought processes. Individually you guys are such amazing writers/thinkers and together you guys make the best team ever! I feel privileged to be a part of a workshop where the facilitators are so genuinely good and mean so well. Fabulous skill sets apart, it is your best intentions for your students that will keep the BWW community together and ensure success for it.

Would you recommend the workshop to others? How would you rate the BWW, on a scale of 1-10, where 10 is the highest?
I would absolutely recommend the workshop to others and I already have. And I’d rate it an 11.

Any other feedback/suggestions for improvement/criticism…
None. This has been the best thing for me, ever!
