What People Say

“Tawnya Renelle saved my manuscript! I can’t recommend Tawnya’s services highly enough. While being able to draw out what was best in my writing, her meticulous, clear and direct feedback gave me the confidence to make some vital revisions to my work as a whole. What really gives her advice clout is her wide-ranging knowledge of experimental literature. Anyone sitting on a dusty word-file waiting for some wise muse to come along and give it that special lift would do well to invest in Tawnya’s help. ” 

“Tawnya’s knowledge of hybrid writing leaves no stone unturned: she’s read it, she’s written it, and she’s taught it. I have found materials in her reading lists that I had not encountered anywhere else, and I am immensely grateful for it. As a teacher, Tawnya is open-hearted, keenly aware of putting her students first.”

“Tawnya is a marvelous teacher – she creates a nurturing and supportive environment which offers participants the freedom to explore and take chances on the page. In my case, this has led to some of my best writing to date. Her experience in both creativity and academia make her workshops accessible, no matter your background. The extensive range of resources and exercises that we’ve covered have truly stretched my imagination, allowing me to think outside the box, telling the stories that I want to tell in a more inventive and exciting way”
