I highly recommend Desiree as your guide. As a result of taking workshops with Desiree I have finished a book of short stories and am now finishing a novel. She is a true treasure for all of us in Long Beach.
Desiree is a wonderful teacher. Having worked with her for two solid years and multiple revisions of my sci fi collection, I found her patience, professionalism, attention to detail and commitment
to excellence awe inspiring.
Don't walk to her classes, run as if your creative life depends on it !!!!!
I'm in the process of writing a memoir and turned to Desiree for some one-on-one feedback. I gave her just the first 40 pages that I’d already written to see if she thought I was on the right track, to see if my writing was pulling her into the story. I wasn’t sure what to expect since we hadn’t worked together before, but I can’t overstate how pleased I am to have consulted with her. From the first words out of her mouth, her insights were extremely helpful, and she gave me much more substantive help than I could have hoped for. I will be definitely be turning to Desiree again as I finesse my pages.
