Blurbs from Lee’s Students and Clients:

Write to Finish was a complete, relaxing, yet challenging surprise for me. As a new writer with too many unfinished short stories, poems, and some lame attempts at a book, Lee inspired and encouraged me to GET MOVING!  Now, I am about to get a children’s book I wrote 22 years ago!  Further, I will ask Lee to keep helping me as long as she can stand it.  Read the book!

Lee is a dedicated, thorough, well-spoken and diligent writer, coach and group facilitator.  She led a Maine Humanities Council grant funded book group called Let’s Talk About It: Truth and Autobiography .  She guided the active participation of 20 attendees by careful listening and prompting what if responses.

Lee Heffner is an outstanding and inspiring writing teacher who is able to take her students (I was fortunate to be one) from spontaneous or sudden fiction to a final, polished, and publishable product.

I took a class from Lee Heffner entitled Finding Your Voice. I was nearing the end of my novel The Burgundy Briefcase when I did find my voice. That voice was the perfect setup for the final scene. I am currently working on two books: another novel and a memoir. What a difference my voice makes to my new works. Thank you, Lee, for your wonderful classes.

Lee’s classes, taught with skill and enthusiasm, have helped me complete a novel, begin a second one, and plan a third. With gratitude, I recommend this book and her classes to other writers who look forward to publication.
