For any aspiring writers out there, I couldn’t recommend the crazy, brilliant, inspiring people at Write Yourself Free more highly. If any of you have an unwritten novel, memoir, poem, short story or even just a perfect paragraph buzzing around inside your head trying to find a way out, these are the people to help you release it.

I had a vague idea for a book I but since it was vague I began by just writing personal essay pieces. The combination of Patrick’s illuminating and educational exercises that begin each class, and his insightful, often brilliant, positive critique of my writing moved me to create an altogether different book. In my opinion, there is no finer teacher and editor than Patrick. And the range of classes Write Yourself Free offers means there’s something for everyone, no matter where they are in the process of writing.
