I learned more from Nancy Smith in two hours than I learned in a whole writing course.  LaDonna Eisenbaum


I give high marks to the checksheet, which was like a roadmap delineating my (modest) virtues and pointing out the pitfalls.   Marci Davis


Because of Nancy Smith, a good script became a better screenplay.  I shall use her again.  Roosevelt Elo

This course provided me with all of the necessary tools I need to begin writing the story’s I want to tell. I highly recommend this class. Andrew Meyer
