Nanci is a warm, enthusiastic teacher who encourages student participation and uses clear, concise examples to model the concepts she teaches. She offers concrete advice on conquering the often daunting task of revision, and she is open to questions and helping new writers find their way. I thoroughly enjoyed her class and would definitely study with her again!” Erin Golden, Sculpting Your Manuscript participant

“Every day, students have mentioned something from your presentation that has impacted them. Even the teachers have been pulling highlights. It was so powerful! And our book club was so inspired by you, one read "Georgia Rules" in just four days, another is reading "Pippi Longstocking" and another picked up "My Side of the Mountain". And Emma decided to start working on her first novel and she is "puking up words" in her notebook!” - Julia Tyser Library/Media Specialist Laramie, WY
