I discovered Seven Bridge Writers’ Collaborative to be a nurturing environment where people from all walks can learn about writing from experts and each other. I am thankful for the Facilitators who bring professional skills and unique experiences working in the writing industry to help developing writers improve. Because of what I am learning, I like to think I’m working toward an MFA…but without the costs.
