Wow - who knew you would be there when I finally decided to let on I'm a poet ready to write again. Thank God! Thank you! Thank you, ACA, for facilitating this series!

I just loved your class. Thank you for facilitating this workshop! We covered so much in four weeks. It was a wonderful experience and I look forward to working with you again! So sorry this is ending… it was so wonderful.

Thank you for creating such a wonderful space to create!

The workshop on poetry that M. B. McLatchey ran was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in a long time.  As a professional singer I have sung so many poems and studied them but never tried my hand at writing one.  I was nervous since most were already "poets".  M. B. immediately made me comfortable and I felt at ease to share what I was doing.   She was supportive and encouraging and has made me want to continue writing poetry.  I would take another workshop with her at the drop of a hat.  I cannot thank her enough for the insights and guidance she provided in an atmosphere of kindness and support.

I have very much enjoyed this course with you and wish it could go on much longer! Thank you!  
    -  Gwen H.

Thank you for your inspired leadership during this workshop experience.  I sincerely regret having missed the first two sessions.  My friend Carole invited me to your next to last session and I was smitten by your gentle and knowledgeable style.  My goodness - how fortunate for us you are willing to teach, lead, and inspire fellow poets!
    -  Linda M.

I have really enjoyed your enthusiasm and insights into what can make better poetry.  I have enjoyed meeting and interacting with the other poets…both those whom I know and others whose voices continue to inspire.
