What students are saying:
“If you are thinking about publishing a book, she’s amazing. If you just want to write a story, she’s amazing.  I highly recommend her classes.” – Katherine, 11 yrs old

“I enjoyed this class very much. This class is easy to understand because it goes at a perfect pace and is taken step by step. This was awesome and so much fun! I hope the book I’m writing gets published one day!(: -Casey, 14 yrs old

 

“I liked how Gina Conroy put the way of planning stories into different types of games and used P.L.A.Y. to bring home the points about Playmate, Location, Action, and Game.  :)  It makes it fun to read and a more engaging way to think about plotting.” – Danielle, 14 yrs old

 

“Gina Conroy…turned my writing upside down in only 10 pages. She crammed so much in I had to come up for air, but I am so pleased with the outcome. Before, I only thought I could write.” Jessie Gunderson
