"Carolyn Ziel is a master facilitator who learns whatever she teaches deep into her psyche and knows how to translate those concepts effectively. She has studied METHOD WRITING with me for over a decade and has an intuitive grasp of its concepts that transcend mere rote repetition. Most important of all, she has an empathic sense of what the student needs and conveys both art and life lessons in a thoughtful and caring manner."
