The class gave me a whole new and satisfying direction in my writing. I don't think I could have gotten there without this class. I now know what I want to focus on and I am so happy... Gloria is a star. A great teacher and a nice person. She really knows her stuff and presented it in a way that kept me enthusiastic and motivated... Offer more classes by Gloria!
Gloria offered specific suggestions and brainstormed with me frequently without suggesting that I conform to her style. I can honestly say that I came away encouraged and motivated after every contact.
The long winding road to publishing my initial manuscripts were shortened after attending Gloria's classes. I exceeded my goals by publishing 30 articles my first year!
I was very pleased with both the content of the class and with the expertise and sensitivity of the instructor, Gloria Kempton... Gloria's classes were very well thought out and organized. She presented the written lectures in an easy to understand format, and included questions designed to provoke thought and insight for her students. She showed a personal, genuine interest in each one of us, and was always willing to help us in our writing efforts. Her commentaries on our work were tactful, always offering positive guidance, and full of "atta boys" that we all need. She made us "feel like writers" from day one... Again, I was very pleased with the entire experience with taking a class through Writers on the Net. The format is so easy to use, and is ideal for those of us trying squeeze writing classes in between work and family obligations. Even though the idea of an internet class provides a degree of anonymity, I very much felt like a part of a "class", and the names on my inbox indeed became friends after the eight weeks together. I came away from the class with definite improved skills, and the determination to continue with my writing efforts. Thank you for making this avenue of study possible!
I was very impressed with the format of the class and the subject matter... Gloria is an excellent instructor and uses this medium well. I felt she gave us enough information to provide a well rounded perspective, to encourage us to think - and not become overwhelmed. The assignments were diverse enough to challenge us and keep us focused on the process of "Discovering our Niche". She was able to effectively project her personality across the miles, develop relationships with us, and empower us with a belief in our own writing abilities. Somehow, she was able to diplomatically walk the fine line of fairly critiquing our work and at the same time, keeping us motivated... I am telling my new writer friends about Writers.com. Gloria encouraged us to get involved with other writers groups, which I am now doing -- and spreading the word about how great you are!... I look forward to another class -- well worth the investment in time and money.
I really enjoyed the class and Gloria was GREAT!!! Taught me a lot about writing and a lot about myself... I never thought that I could write and I have found an inner voice that I never knew that I had... You have an excellent platform and excellent teachers (and the price is good. too). I have looked into other programs that cost twice to three times as much and I doubt that they can be that much better... Thanks a bunch Gloria... you are great!!!... Thanks for being there... it has opened up a whole new arena for me.... to the good... and I now realize I not only "don't" want to go back to where I was.... I cannot.
[Gloria] is amazingly insightful and encouraging without holding back the needed criticism.
Discovering your writing niche" proved to be very beneficial. Each of the assignments were appropriately linked to the corresponding lesson. At the completion of each assignment I was left with a definite feel for what I liked or didn't like to write. I was very happy with the content and the manner in which it was presented. Gloria Kempton did a fine job teaching.
