My heartfelt thanks go to Tanya Nichols, Fresno State lecturer for her June 28 article, "Students' Writing Touches Teacher's Heart" published in The Bee's Valley Voices. I enrolled in Tanya's first memoirs class that she taught for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
It was a fabulous class and I learned so much from Tanya. I thank her for her inspiration and for introducing me to writing dialogue, something I did not think I was capable of. I have found that it adds so much to your story.
Tanya is an outstanding teacher and offers so much knowledge and encouragement. If you like writing, sign up for one of Tanya's classes. You will not regret it. Thanks again, Tanya.
