"Having my work read by many different eyes gave me feedback and insight to things [in my work] that were engaging, but also to things that might be missing or improved."

"I felt determined to meet my deadlines and goals, as I would share my progress amongst my peers. I also became inspired as we workshopped different assignments, to test our writing skills."

"I learned to follow a plan and stick to it."
