Testimonial from a Portland parent who hosted the Writer's Workshop for 2 years:
"Sarah, thank you for providing a safe and supportive space for our kids!
Your writing class, and this group of friends/young humans are the reason emily survived Covid in its darkest days, so we can't thank ALL OF YOU (kids/parents and Sarah) enough!
This weekly class was more than just a space for writing, and I saw it every Monday-
It was a space to connect, and feel heard in a world that has felt scary and confusing for the last few years.
The writing group was safe and quiet, (sometimes giggly) and free from judgement. It allowed our kids to be kids, and to tune out the noise for 1.5 hours every week-
Again, thank you Sarah for this gift- Emily and I are so appreciative of YOU everyday.
I will miss hosting and connecting with the kids every week, and Shelby won't know what to do on mondays without her 'pups' to look after."
