from previous workshop attendees:

I recently attended a Writers Workshop presented by Lisa and was immensely pleased with my decision to attend.  Lisa’s individual critique of one of my pieces was invaluable to me, that day and moving forward in my writing.  I am looking forward to attending future workshops with her.

The workshop I attended with Lisa was very engaging.  It even inspired me because I came away from the workshop with new story ideas to work on in the future.  I plan to attend more of her workshops when they become available. Entertaining, Enlightening, and Engaging.                                                                                                                       Elaine Satterfield, Bridgeport, WV

I would highly recommend workshops coordinated and facilitated by Ms. Minney.  She is down to earth, humorous, and a wealth of knowledge.  If you have the opportunity to attend, by all means, sign up quickly before they fill up!                                                       Holly Knight, Calhoun County, WV

          I attended the Writer’s Workshop conducted by Lisa at Heritage Park in Calhoun County, and must say it was one of the best workshops I have attended in quite some time.  Lisa worked hard on this project and it showed.  She was well prepared with prompts and stories to compliment the prompts.  The location, the exercises and the food was excellent.  I was able to accomplish my goal for the workshop, which was to come away with writings and drafts to take home and continue with my writing.  The workshop was geared to participants of all levels of writing (which was an added bonus) and I know everyone came away with new writing.
      I would not hesitate to attend any workshop conducted by Lisa and in fact, would attend this same workshop again if it were offered.  I have recommended the workshop to numerous writing friends.
