Ericka is truly a writer's teacher, insightful, perceptive, and -- perhaps most important -- deeply caring. She deftly guides writers in unlocking their own creativity.
-- Camille J. Cusumano

Ericka's teaching style is one of the most effective I've ever encountered. She doesn't teach with just a handful of one-liners, only asking writers to 'show instead of tell.' Rather, Ericka's style is much more insightful and adaptive. Ericka critiques with an eye sensitive to all the qualities that most writers are trying to obtain -- from simple mechanics, to style of prose, to fleshing out the message that her students are trying to convey. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is trying to become the best writer they can be. She is one of the sharpest teachers out there.
-- Max Delgado

Are you pulling our legs?

"No fair! Your word innerve ain't in my Merriam-Webster. (But if it is a neologism, it's easy enought to interpret--back development of innervation.)"

And congratulations, champ.  Watching your enthusiastic race to victory was fun.
