     Comments about Allen's workshops


     “I liked the informal, relaxed atmosphere and
      comfortable pace. 
This was the inspiration
      and practicality I needed.”

           —Lloyd Sharp, Patagonia, AZ


     “I’ve learned more in these two days than in
      four months through my writing course.”

           —Nancy Alder, Green Valley, AZ


     “As a veteran of many literary conferences and
      workshops, I can say that this one has given 
      me more useful advice than all the others
      combined. Your sense of humor keeps it from
      becoming a chore.”
            —Jeanne Elliott, Green Valley, AZ


    “You covered material I had no idea I needed
      to consider.”

            —Harold Marshall, Sonoita, AZ


    “The workshop was well thought out,
      organized and presented with energy and
      enthusiasm! Relaxed, comfortable
      atmosphere and good student involvement.”

             —Terry Price, Elgin, AZ
