from 2007 Participants
old automobile commercial used to urge car-shoppers to "ask the
man who owns one." Read what participants had to say about some
of the workshops they attended and their experience at the Adirondack
events as a whole. Their words capture the mood of the week.
the retreat was life-changing for me. I have had this inside of me
my whole life, trying to get out, me thinking it was a much more difficult
process. The workshop leaders I came in contact with were so wonderfully
supportive and encouraging. I have also fallen in love with the Thurman
area. I will be visiting often from now on and will put your website
on my bookmark bar so I can always know what is going on up there.
I'm looking forward to coming back to Fiction among Friends.
(It was) a journey into myself and a rediscovery of my desired path
in life. It made me revisit who I really am and what I truly love
to do. No workshop like this is ever long enough.
The exercises were exactly what I needed; there has been value in
everything. (The presenter) created a safe, comfortable environment
for me to learn, share and enjoy my first real writing workshop. I
could spend weeks in workshops like this.
Excellent, top-notch, workshop-providing a unique creative experience.
It was sheer magic!
" This workshop was packed with information about POV, including
tricks for tackling challenges to writing in each of the respective
points of view. The presenter provided examples of how writers have
achieved success with difficult POV issues.
" Fully packed, all-encompassing. Small. Discussions with lots
of opportunity for questions and answers.
