Testimonial from Lisa Marshall, Poet & Member of the IPRC Board of Directors:
“I did the program last year (finished in May 2011), and I can honestly say it was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. I have written poetry casually for years, but never studied creative writing and never attempted to publish. BT is an extraordinary and compelling instructor. She’s endlessly funny and can be quite demanding when she believes you could be doing more/delving deeper. When the program ended, I said with absolute honesty that I wished I could keep doing it for another year. Instead, I joined IPRC’s Board of Directors.”
