Quotes from People

Marcia Swearingen, Freelance Writer: "I took Lettie's Christian Writers' class and it was excellent. Very informative and well worth the money. She connects. I learned more practical, usable information in two sessions than I did in multiple sessions in a university setting. I highly recommend it."

Wendy Brown, former Missionary: "At a recent teacher training conference I attended it was said that Lettie Kirkpatrick was as close to being a Master teacher as one could possibly be this side of glory."

Michael Fink, retired Director of LifeWay Writers Workshop: "Lettie is first of all an excellent writer, so she knows how to communicate effectively. Second, she has mastered all aspects of the religious market as well as anyone I know. But finally and most importantly, she knows how to take a new writer through the basic steps and inspire them to greater achievement. Writers love her for her insightful help and her loving spirit. She's been there and done that, but she never tires of helping others to go there and do that too. What a combination!"

Nancy Simmons Vineyard, Author and Freelance Writer: "Lettie Kirkpatrick eagerly offers encouragement to both published and non-published writers. In her workshops, she offers practical advice along with handouts that you will use again and again."
