"It was one of the greatest experiences I ever had. It was a pleasant experience exchanging ideas and techniques with people I haven't met before. I've learned a lot that wasn't taught before and learned new unfamiliar terminologies related to writing. I could definitely use the lessons discussed in the workshop on my course and in the future."

Nastassja Ariele C. Braceros


"I bet everyone left smiling, energized and inspired to write. The event was very fruitful. Sir Ricky is genuine, wise, and brilliant--learned a lot from him. My co-participants were engaged and participative--gained helpful insights from them too. The organizers were alert and helpful; their care and dedication are obvious. Each moderator tried to accommodate everyone's needs so each participant can maximize the learning experience."
