Thank you, Harriet.  I had a wonderful time at the (STLA) conference and I especially enjoyed your workshop.  You're a great facilitator. I returned with some wonderful techniques in mind to expound on and explore with a writing ministry I'm endeavoring to start at my church in Brooklyn.  I look forward to working with you again.
