Ladane’s class was unique in combining apt readings, essential craft tools, inspiring prompts, and extensive comments on our writing with a perfectly pitched teaching approach, supportive of everyone in our diverse group of professional writers and near-novices. She shared just the right amount of her own experiences to be comforting and inspiring. Ladane is empathetic, kind and inclusive. She created a wonderful atmosphere in which everyone felt they had a voice, and no one felt rushed.
