Sheri Joseph ran the first ever writing workshop I took as an undergraduate. The class, filled with a good mix of young misfits, was a wonderful experience. In the class I met Stephanie Perkins, who would become a good friend. Sheri was patient and kind with regard to my stories in which nothing actually happened, or the same things happened over and over again. Thanks for making my first workshop experience painless instead of traumatic, Sheri!
If you’re in the area, try to get to the event sponsored by the Georgia Center for the Book. Cheers.
