I found Mary-Kate’s workshop helpful not only for the tools she handed out for idea construction, but she also demystified so many steps in the writing process. Over the course of a fast few hours she gave everyone sitting around the table the full benefit of her enthusiasm and experience. Her teaching style is both incredibly efficient and spontaneous. She’s a natural.
