Joyce is disarming, gracious, and a masterful teacher. She prepared us that we would get our money's worth (like it or not) in the way of direct, unfiltered feedback and that the workshop, although demanding, would make us stronger writers. I can attest to all the above; I am changed by the experience. 

- J. H., 2016 One-day Intensive student
