Valuable Experience

Emerging authors benefit from the practical Writing Studio classroom experience:

I attended the Preserving Your Family in Words course last year taught by Laura Ehrke. Each class provided writing inspirations which I know I needed.  She took us through a very structured methodology of teaching us how to approach writing our family histories.  She is extremely encouraging and allowed us all to share what our approaches were and how the work was being developed.  She encouraged feedback and provided guidance when we got stuck. I am keeping in touch with Laura for her next courses at Harper College because I definitely want to be on the roster! Lupe S. Wood  MS ACC, Career Solutions Coach

The Publish It Yourself Workshop continuing education course at Harper College was a wonderful experience. The instructor combined his passion for books and his direct knowledge of the self-publishing industry into an engaging classroom experience. I learned the step-by-step process of publishing my book, but also gained a sense of purpose as I tackled my project. I'm thrilled to share my ideas with the world, and grateful to Harper College for helping me find my voice. Chuck Snoad, author, Sharp Left Turn
