Gillian’s writing prompts followed the philosophy that creativity is best stimulated by limitations. They were designed to generate material and then pick out the nuggets of gold for polishing. This approach built up my confidence and comfort with just writing for the joy of it, without the self-critical pressure to be brilliant on the first try.

Gillian takes a wholistic approach to her critiques and suggestions. Her extensive knowledge base and command of language make her feedback on the technical aspects of writing, grammar and technique--such as point of view-- invaluable.

But she is also tremendously gifted at reading and feeling the spirit of a story. She can cut to the heart of the author's intent and lend a guiding hand to help an author clarify her voice and make the story sing.

Gillian treats the work with respect and the author with compassion, a gift that a rare few possess.

Gillian is a thoughtful person who would be a real asset to any writer or to those who maintain a journal and are ready to go to the next level in their writing. She has numerous writing credits, but it is her accessibility, clarity and knowledge that would be the gift for feedback and creative growth.
