Kelly Stone is an awesome and patient teacher. Thanks to her I am able to say 'I am a writer!'. Her classes TIME TO WRITE and EMPOWER YOUR MUSE have changed my writing life! Do yourself a favor and take both courses! ~ Debra Hosey
Taking Kelly's classes and interacting with her has been a wonderful experience for me. She has given me both inspiration for my writing and insight into my dreams. She listened, discerned, and helped bring new life and a new spring budding to a plant that had laid dormant for a long winter's time. Thank you. ~ Rae Stabosz

Kelly’s class was incredibly useful. She introduced a number of ways to effectively break through perceived creative blocks; tap into unconscious writing superpowers; and stimulate those atrophying writing muscles with great exercises, homework, and lectures. I didn't feel overwhelmed; on the contrary, I looked forward to doing the assignments. I felt like—yes!—this woman really really gets what goes on in the mind of the writing creative. A big bonus: my writing confidence has gone up! Thank you, Kelly! ~ Elana G.
