"My weekly conversations with Emily by telephone are as good as "in persons" because of her acute ability to listen. She removes walls, helps me step over debris, and at times, picks up one of her medieval swords to help slay my Inner Critic dragon. I always come away excited, with new direction and confidence in my ability to do what I need to do with my writing."
"Emily has a unique gift of being able to listen for story, even over the telephone, and she has helped me develop characters and scenes that are rich with feeling and emotion. Working with her over the phone for the last three years has been the best thing I have done to improve my writing. We also laugh a lot!"
"Working with Emily in the Mentoring Program has realigned my sense of self and purpose. Our weekly sessions are chiropractic for the creative soul, replenishing my identity as a writer, and our more casual online chats throughout the week help keep me focused on and committed to the writing life."
