A satisfied customer writes:

"Humorous, insightful and revealing. My students were intrigued, engaged and entertained. A rare glimpse into a writer's creative process field with unexpected revelations, deep insights and surprising connections between images and ideas. The topic of womens' health turned into a wonderful exploration of history, medicine and the poetic imagination."--Irina Ruvinsky, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, professor, "Illness as Metaphor" class, Spring 2022 (in person, masked)
