Classes generally work for me and I find them to be the strong point of the program.

My suggestions for the future is to really look at the relationship between staff and students as an issue rather than waiting for specific events to occur. I would like to see active planning for the future and need to see something concrete come out of the program in terms of promotional material. That putting down on paper what the FSW is is a way of validating what we are doing and is a commitment. Too often expectations are creating because of lack of adequate information. And it also puzzles me. Were I to create a Writer's in Residency Program and then not do any kind of publicity or description of the program or communicate with any writers, Deena I am sure would be critical and tell me that it is a way of not honoring my work. The same is true of the relationship [[strikethrough]] to sa [[/strikethrough]] of the staff to the FSW. The FSW is your work as much as anything you produce in your field, and you do not honor it, and it shows. 

Three positive strokes:

As I said, the classes are excellent and a strong point of the program. They are strong because of the expertise of the women that teach them.

Nowhere have I ever experienced the challenge for growth and the possibility for putting all skill I may have to use. Within the walls of this building I have had the opportunity to experiment explore and create.

Regardless of all my criticism, I love you.

Solutions: Jill, Val, Joanne. Publicity: analyze who we are and how other perceive us and decide who we want to be to the public. The solution to the relationship to the community is "Spinning Off".
