A Word from Patricia Hermes
"Within every emerging writer, is a story teller, crying to be heard. The stories that need telling may be funny or sad, poignant or hilarious, but like all stories, they need to emerge in a satisfactory form, to make it onto the page. It is the job of a teacher, a coach, to help the writer let out those stories, to help the writer put those stories into a form that is publishable for none of us wants only to write for ourselves. We write to be read. To bring that writing to the professional level, is how I see my job... to nurture the story teller, to teach and support the story teller, to help bring those stories to fruition."
