Joanna Howard's Published Work

Invaluable, priceless workshop. Joanna's depth and breadth of knowledge, not just in literature and craft but in life itself, seems bottomless. Workshop participants have talked among ourselves marveling at her talent in making critical connections that have deepened our work. I want to thank Joanna for creating a safe environment where we could speak openly and honestly (and, in my case, rather clumsily). Among all her many talents, Joanna's ability to create a truly safe space where students spoke openly and honestly was immensely appreciated.
