What Writers are Saying

I can’t remember a more enjoyable and informative presentation. Sam's ability to focus on each person’s work and rearrange elements showed directorial genius… I am very glad I attended.

Tim Christian, Victoria

My 1-on-1 with Ali was absolutely fantastic. I feel excited and re-energized to continue working on my book, and can’t wait to attend more writers meetings and workshops.

L.K., Toronto

You can try to study creative writing in a class, but it's hard to learn what will set you apart until you work with someone who sells books for a living! Sam's advice and support is invaluable.

Amy Dixon, Toronto

I just had my meeting with Ali and the experience was fantastic. Her input, comments, I just loved spending time with her.

Johanna Montilla, Toronto

I cannot thank you and Sam enough for organizing this unique opportunity for new novelists such as myself. I hope to have another meeting with him in the future."

Yale Wang, Toronto

It was amazing! Ali was very encouraging and her feedback and suggestions were really helpful. I was really glad I did it.
