Thank you so much for generously sharing your hard-won knowledge! Your concepts and practical strategies helped me go forward on organizing the material I've been amassing for a book, as well as figuring out what still needs to be written. I have a long way to go but now don't feel quite as overwhelmed.

The classes I have taken with you have helped clear the path for my voice to reveal itself through my novel. When I began, I had no idea what an adventure this would be. Your calm wisdom and clear direction has brought me through many challenging times. Had I not found you and your class I would not be experiencing the joy and pleasure I now receive from my writing.

What a marvelous piece of luck that my daughter Carolyn told me to go to the Loft--and that you were there for me!

Mary was fantastic:  an excellent facilitator, a guide providing us with oodles of skills and tools to tackle an overwhelming task, emotional mountain:  book making.

This is—far and away—the BEST workshop I've ever attended on any topic. Full of useful, productive content. Very balanced.

If I could implement all I've learned from you, I'd have a best-seller!

I was a student at the Loft Literary Center when I lived in Minneapolis. I do miss your classes since moving to France. I just recently discovered your blog and have been re-inspired! After a long period trying to ignore that nagging voice... I am beginning again! Thank you so much!

I was so thirsty for this workshop experience. [She's] an experienced and skilled teacher. I liked every part.

What you teach [in the book workshop] should be in EVERY High School freshman English class! I keep saying, “If I had only known, I would not have struggled so."
—Annette Walters, Minnesota

My momentum has hit a great pace. So far, that's the "Wow!" factor for me with this class: my commitment to my writing practice.
—student in "Your Book Starts Here," Part 1, online class

This was one of the best writing workshops I've ever taken! It allowed room for creativity and muse to flow but also gave clear-cut guidance and direction on what to do once the inspiration has happened. A perfect balance of work and play.
