Jacinda Townsend's Published Work

Jacinda Townsend did an excellent job with this class. Her lecture, writing exercise, and class discussion were spot on with the subject matter. She did a great job giving us specific strategies, and I was able to make a breakthrough with the beginning of my own novel with her helpful writing exercise. Thank you, Jacinda!
