I haven't run this challenge before, so I don't have any feedback to share with you, but here is some of the feedback from the November Writing and Grammar Challenge that I hosted. :)  

I really enjoyed the course. I can now write a better sentence with more confidence. 

- Claire L.

The patience, time, energy, and meaningful material you gave to us was incredible. 

- Madeleine C. 

This course was definitely worth the time and money, and the interaction between students and instructor was priceless! It was fun, educational, and satisfying to the nth degree. I would absolutely pay to take this same course again, knowing it would be just as worthwhile a second time around! I especially enjoyed students sharing their work with each other and seeing your comments about other students' submissions. In effect, this tripled the take-away learning experience of each lesson.

- Terry P.

Your organized presentation, introducing one concept at a time, made the material clear and graspable. I really enjoyed this class and found it very valuable. 

- Stephen B.
