Praise from Former Workshop Participants

"The poems that Ms. Moon examined during workshop were incredibly thought-provoking, provided much exciting dialogue and were used as prompts for our assignments. I was very impressed with how Ms. Moon directed and engaged classroom discussion on such sensitive and emotional topics. The class was very diverse (age/gender/race/sexual orientation/etc) with deep-rooted opinions. I initially worried that heated topics would lead to heated debates and classmates could easily be hurt. However, Ms. Moon never faltered and consistently composed excellent and moving discussions grounded in respect. It was phenomenal. I truly enjoyed every second of that workshop. Moreover, her feedback always made for a stronger poem."  ~Rocio Pena
