“Susan’s writing advice has helped me numerous times over the years. (I still use her “how to write a synopsis” guide for every project I tackle.) Her tone is friendly and conversational, her examples are always informative, and the range of topics she covers is vast. I learn a bit more about craft (and my own writing) every time I read one of her posts. Academy is an invaluable resource to writers at all stages!”
