WHAT WRITERHOUSE STUDENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT ANDREW
“Andrew did very well at keeping the class on subject, even when some attendees veered off course. He has an approachable, easygoing teaching style that puts everyone at ease.”
“Andrew presented a fine balance of providing useful instructional material, using an example of the contrast between an early draft and the final edited version of his own book, plus useful writing exercises, discussion and generally keeping things on track.”
“A welcoming instructor. Provided craft instruction on dialogue compression, which was very useful.”
“The exercises were great. The multiple recommendations throughout the course for more reading were really appreciated. I felt like I could keep learning past the group session.”
