Temescal Writers

Amherst Writers & Artists


“The workshop and your guidance provided me with not only inspiration for poetry (poems that eventually got me accepted at U.W.!) but also imbued me with a sense of kindness to others.”
—Jeanine DeRusha, M.F.A. University of Washington
“You provide just the right mix of nurturance and stimulation. You offer us challenges in the form of writing exercises, but you leave us free to use them in our individual ways. And you are calm, gentle, considerate and thoughtful.”                                                             
— Sara Caldwell, Retiree
“You have a naturalness about you, a lack of pretension, and a strong sense of an adult self. You have given me and so many other people a safe place to write. What an extraordinary, powerful gift that is. And rare.”
—Christopher DeLorenzo, Writing Instructor,
University of San Francisco, and Director of Laguna Writers, San Francisco
