Special thanks to you for your insightful suggestions about my own storytelling…You gave me just what I needed, not just for that story, but as I work through the expression of other stories your suggestions will guide me.
Connie’s technique provides grounded, practical tools that let a story, and its teller really take flight. She’s a master, and she generously shares her wealth of useful wisdom and experience.
Being with you and learning from you was and is a profound gift. I will use what I learned from your workshop in so many ways–as a grandmother, as a workshop facilitator, as a story-teller, as a writer, and as a human being in this world.
