Hershon, Joanna
Narrative Forms

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I agree with the previous review. She really didn't seem to care. She didn't respond to my emails. She had a required conference after each story, but she was late both times and took personal phone calls both times, thus my 15 minute conferences ended up being abut 5 minutes.

Beyond that, she didn't give solid advice, it was sort of airy and I'd leave the workshop not having any idea of what worked and what didn't. Of course, a lot of the student work was abyssmal, pretentious and inaccessible (style over substance).
