Some comments from my past evaluation forms

“Prepared me very well for a wild month.”

“Excellent, experienced instructor.”

“Great facilitator!”

“Was ‘damn’ satisfied!”

Become a Published Author, UVic, Nov. 2010

“With the internet, most of the information given in this class could be found elsewhere, but having the personal accounts from the instructor was very motivational and much more interesting than just looking it up. And having the instructor answer questions was so helpful. Enjoyed it very much.”

“This course forced me to ‘get it together’.”

“Course was very informative and helpful and well-presented in a comfortable environment…I have a much clearer understanding of the processs involved…I found the course covered what I needed to know. I feel confident about the process now. ”

“The workshop time in the second class was extremely helpful. I liked the workshop format, especially getting to work on our own submissions and getting feedback on them.”

“Alisa Gordaneer is very organized and knowledgeable on this topic—very worthwhile.”

“The format for this class is good—having it over the course of a couple of weeks helps to continue the motivation/gives time to prepare submissions to publishers.”

“I would recommend it to anyone interested in making that first tentative step from writer to published author.”

“Alisa was able to answer all the questions I had, as well as questions that I would never have known to ask.”
