Cindy Burns, Actress, Comedian: “I have always felt that there was a book in me. With the help of Jim and Lee I was able to step by step lay down the bones. With the exercises that we do it seemed as if the book wrote itself. One thing that I love is that it is a non-critical environment. I found myself digging deeper and being surprised by what I wrote. I encourage anyone wanting to write a book to do this class.”

Marybeth Hrim: “This class has helped me become the writer I have always wanted to be. Every class is action packed with fun exercises that move your writing the next level. I highly recommend CSL writer’s workshop will affirm, encourage, and empower you to get your book to completion. Jim and Lee are the real deal! What a pleasure to be a part of this great workshop. If you have a book inside you don’t hesitate to sign up!”

Robert Burns: “The skill sets I learned in the CSL Writers Workshop have helped me not only in writing, it has helped me communicate complex ideas in stories. Jim would exclaim “people remember the stories, not the facts” and Lee gently explain the benefit of metaphor and analogy. When you see a paragraph you wrote rewritten with their help, you realize you do have a fantastic story to tell!”

Ginni Gordon: “I was knew that I wanted to write a book, someday, about retirement but, until I enrolled in this class, it was just a “good idea.” I have produced a first draft that I find interesting and informative. Their enthusiasm is contagious, their format is done in small enough steps that even the most beginning beginner can come out with a great product…a book.”
