Suzanne is not just a formidable writer, but she’s also a brilliant workshop leader, creating a safe, imaginative and inspiring workplace, which allows writers to take all manner of risks on the page. No one is more affirming than Suzanne, who has a remarkable capacity to echo back the words that captured her imagination, and her understanding of how they add to the overall piece. Listening to Suzanne’s comments is an educative commentary on theme, structure and craft. The result is so uplifting, so encouraging, so helpful, that I leave with the courage to continue on my own – but better, with more focus and more confidence – than I ever could solo. Suzanne Kingsbury is a writer’s dream of collegiality, nurturing support and encouragement come true. ~ Deb Luskin, Vermont, author of Into the Wilderness, and the upcoming novel, Girl and winner of the IPPY Award for Regional Fiction.
UPDATE FOR DEB! Deb and I worked together on her second book (her first: Into the Wilderness is an award-winning novel), and after several intense conversations about which agent to choose (Deb had her choice!) she chose one she loves, who has her out to all the major houses in NY. Deb is also a regular in the writing salons and has attended a retreat salon, so we are ALL routing for her intense, award-winning writing!!
