“I took what you said to heart - to have the courage to bring in the imperfect in order to work on it and learn. The lesson you taught me is one of the most valuable ones I've ever gotten. It unlocked something not only for this play, but for ALL my plays. I felt like I leveled up as a playwright.” ~Gina Femia

“Winter's precise advice cuts deeply and strongly into the heart of the play. Her process makes you want to commit daily to your work and this emotional investment is both satisfying and enriching. You will not feel fear or procrastinate! Through the combination of her tutorials with your own rewriting and editing, the play can move to fresh places of clarity. Her calm, optimistic - but never gushing - style will not only improve your current play but will provide strength and knowledge for the future too.” ~ Kieran Carroll, Australian playwright
