have become published authors either in novels or
short stories since participating in this
workshop - but there is no guarantee or promise
of this happening.
|This class has been a real eye opener
with what went wrong in my previous short stories. Thanks
to Cheryl, I've done a whole 'about-turn' in my writing.
Suddenly, things seem to be sliding into place.
...this workshop was like a one
on one mentorship. What I have learned has turned my
writing around. It suddenly opened up a whole new way of
thinking about my writing.

|Think Outside the Square
workshops are conducted by a published author who knows
her craft and how to teach it. All the basic
elements of how to develop a short story are here.
The advice is practical and provided in an easy to
understand, enjoyable manner. I think just
about anyone, experienced or novice, could learn
something new from Cheryl. I know I did.

|Cheryl's workshop was great. I learned
a lot about character development and realized I was
lacking in some of the personal knowledge of my
characters. Cheryl explains the basics of getting a short
story off the ground and taking it all the way through
marketing it to get it published.
With the personal feedback, I feel my writing
has grown through Cheryl's workshop. "Think Outside
the Square" teaches you just that and offers
friendly advise on how to get what you really want out of

|I had written only one children's
short story before taking the course. Through the
character development assignment, I saw a short
story forming. But, then it fell short. I
couldn't see past the beginning of the story. After
one more assignment and some advice from Cheryl and
another student, Viola! There it was! I was
able to further develop my story and really enjoyed
tapping into my own creativity. The short story
course was like a key unlocking my ideas.
