  • Of all the writing courses I have taken, this one has stuck with me.” Siona Drummond. Agent at Brickenden Speakers Group.

    “3 years of trying to get published pre-Deb: no Globe and Mail. A few months post- Deb: my first essay is published. I couldn’t have done it without Deb’s Unlock the Block writers’ retreat. Michelle Hauser, Kingston Whig Standard 2013

    ” Deborah’s dynamic energy and funny way of imparting wisdom helps it stick. ” Collette Currin 2013

    “Your approach was uniquely under-bearing for a “teacher”. No one was judged. We only applied your suggestions. For the defiant type this is magic.” Richard Armin

    “She took me from diary and therapy writing to waking up and writing about life in front of me.” Rita Jastoma

    “Deb’s energy and commitment to her students is inspiring and you come away from her workshops with real tools to help you move forward in your writing and break through barriers and obstacles that block you. Highly recommended for any level of writer or artist wishing to get the creative juices flowing in a supportive, non-judgmental environment.” – Deborah Jarvis, Screenwriter 2011 -2012
