TESTIMONIALS

“Leslie Schwartz is as insightful and sensitive a reader as I’ve met, and if that wasn’t enough, her enthusiasm is infectious.  She gave this first novelist the confidence to cross the finish line, and it was under her influence and inspiration that I solved a key structural problem that allowed me to envision – and complete – my first novel.  A writer looking for the way forward could find no better friend than Leslie Schwartz.”

Mark Sarvas, Author "Harry Revised"

“I have been a student in Leslie’s workshop for 7 years, during which I have completed two novels. The level of writing in the workshop is very high, and the standards keep rising as time goes by.  Leslie is a careful, thoughtful reader whose comments always inspire me to make my work better. The workshop is a place where we writers can expose our gifts and our weaknesses, our differences and vulnerabilities; Leslie makes it a safe, professional space in which I have grown, as a writer and as a reader, in skill and in self-confidence.”

Lynn Cohen, Author "A Terrible Case of Beauty"

“Structure! Structure! Structure! Leslie Schwartz’s authoritative voice rings in my ears every time I sit down to write. I am convinced that without her sure, expert guidance my first novel would never have been published. She’s everything I want in a writing teacher: dedicated to craft and a passionate artist who truly enjoys guiding and nurturing new writers.  Her classes are the perfect balance of creativity and discipline, and her infinite excitement for the skillfully written word is invigorating.”

Eduardo Santiago, Author "Tomorrow They Will Kiss You"
