""Your Write Stuff Seminar empowered me to write my family history. Your gentle guidance and a supportive group helped me see that I am indeed a writer! I appreciated the prompts, and the opportunity to share my work with others. I loved exploring the variety of forms one’s family history might take. You inspired me to express myself and in so doing leave a family legacy. Thank you, Lisa.""

"Recently I used some Cleveland city directories to find the basics I had been searching for -- names, occupation and addresses. But then I took Diana's course and realized how much I had missed by searching only the alphabetical section. I also learned how I could expand my knowledge of this branch of my family by answering the excellent questions Diana raised in Lesson 3; more efficiently organize my findings; and check/record related sources. It was definitely worth the time and effort I invested."
"“I highly recommend Lisa’s courses The Write Stuff: Telling the Story and The Write Stuff II: Advancing the Story. I took both courses, and I think that my writing has improved greatly. Although the class is self-paced, the private Facebook Group allows you to share your work with the teacher and other students. Each time that I posted work in the Facebook group, Lisa gave personalized feedback. Through revision and re-posting, I was able to improve my writing in each assignment based on the feedback. Receiving instructor feedback in a self-paced online course is rare; usually you must pay a lot of money for courses with instructor feedback. Lisa also gave final feedback on my revisions. I found the instructor comments to be very useful. Lisa gave one or two positive comments, then several suggestions for improvement. Lisa’s feedback showed me things that I was blind to that I was doing in my writing and showed me ways to improve.”"
