Writers at Work provided me with encouragement and exposure for my fiction. Terry provided multiple opportunities to read my work at public spaces in front of interested and supportive audiences. She also trained and prepared me to give an interesting and successful public reading, holding practice sessions and guidance on selecting the right excerpt to read. With WAW's support, I have been able to confidently share my work and get very positive feedback from audience members.
