Angela is an amazing teacher and provided great feedback and useful tips that helped to improve my manuscript. She's incredible! Her classes are my favorite.
I love Angela Knight's workshops and always take them when I hear about them.
I always learn something new and the critique alone is always worth the cost of the workshop.
