Testimonials

Great writing prompts and discussion questions. Detailed feedback on poems from the teaching artist, who also did an excellent job of moderating online chats and was generous with her time (while still maintaining good boundaries). Participants were thoroughly engaged and also gave meaningful feedback on poems. LouAnn Muhm without a doubt provided the best experience I’ve had in a Loft class — and that’s saying a lot, because I’ve had a lot of great classes in-person and online.

***************************

The participants were an exceptional group and interacted well. LouAnn Muhm is a wonderful teacher/poet whose suggestions, critiques and resources are very helpful and approachable. She is encouraging of our work and very respectful when “mucking about” in our poems. I really learned the value of critiquing poetry and this is changing the way I think about my own poetry.

***************************

I have found with each poem prompt some initial resistance as this is outside my usual style/approach, but that once I get going on the process, I do find I am expanding my comfort zone and therefore my skills. LouAnn is a very skilled and conscientious facilitator for leading us as a group and also for her warm and engaging style. Her feedback is very thoughtful.

***************************

LouAnn is a remarkable teacher. She always has the best interests of her students at heart, and takes time with each one.

****************************

We are obviously in the hands of a master teacher and the class includes some majorly-talented poets.

I feel I am being challenged and stretched beyond anything I’ve ever written. Instructor and students are most helpful. I’m enjoying this class–never taken one in the summer before and I find I’m more relaxed and fruitful. Can’t say enough about it.
