“Working with Sarah has added a very creative dimension to our school experience… The students were engaged in the activities she facilitated and they left as better writers because of her.”Randy Lange, PhD, D102 Talent Development Program Coordinator

“Sarah Hammond did a marvellous job on her visit… We had two very different audiences for her, one comprising mixed ability [aged 11-14], and one made up of Gifted, More Able and Talented students [aged 14-16]. Sarah handled the transition from one session to the other beautifully, skilfully and seamlessly adapting her approach and materials to hit the right pitch. Both groups felt that they had learned a lot about the demands made on a writer and about the business of crafting language for desired effects.” Paul P Rees, Head of English, Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School

“Sarah was energetic, knowledgeable, and a joy to work with throughout the planning of both her workshop for the second graders at our local primary school and her workshop for adults. I can’t recommend her enough!” Larissa Distler, Adult Services Librarian at Galena Public Library

“The Storytelling in Word and Image class really got my daughter’s creativity flowing and she loved the experience,” Sarah Strang, parent of a fifth grader

Your session was fabulous! I… walked away with story ideas, and I know [I was…] not the only one. You were (are!) charming and informative and full of good advice and creative inspiration.” Patricia Ann McNair, author, essayist, Artistic Director of the Shake Rag Alley Writer’s Retreat, professor in the English and Creative Writing Department, Columbia College, Chicago

…my daughter…absolutely loved going to the creative workshop[s]..Sarah Hammond was an incredible teacher and mentor.  Each class was an adventure and yet so informative… she is very excited to put what she learned into good use.” Zandy Lazarski, parent

Sarah is so inspiring! Students love working with her, and I was so fortunate to learn about her tips and tricks for writing. Thank you! – Osena Kuehnle, Language Arts Teacher, Park Junior High

“Sarah Hammond’s thoughtful and intelligent talk to my first-year university students improved their understanding of the genre of teen fiction and gave them confidence in writing it with her insights about the process. I look forward to having her back!” Dr Carrie Etter, Senior Lecturer, Bath Spa University

“Thank you so much for the time you spent with [my daughter]… From her writing I can tell that she has really learned so much from your guidance.” Jenna Plonka, parent
