Workshops for students, parents, teachers
Diana's two-hour writing workshop was a gold mine. She did the multum non multa, much not many. By going in-depth on one of the core problems of writing and carefully helping us understand why they are the death knell of writing both for content and style, she was able to help both teachers and students alike understand the power of words to inspire and move people. And just as effective as what she teaches is how she teaches. She interacts with her audience in a way that motivates them and helps them to see the same problem from a whole new perspective. I highly recommend her writing workshops.
