“I fully recommend Nita Sweeney, a wonderful teacher who I asked to bring writing practice to Ohio. She has studied with me intensively for many years and understands the fears and hopes of writers. Her workshops benefit beginners as well as long-time practitioners.” – Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones and Wild Mind
“I was delighted to meet and work with you!” – Laura Davis author of The Courage to Heal and I Thought We’d Never Speak Again
“This was the best class I have ever attended. I learned more today than I have in whole quarters of classes!” – from anonymous student evaluation
“Nita Sweeney’s class (which I take frequently out of sheer pleasure) was the tool I needed. Having written on and off my entire life with dreams of sticking to it, her class changed my life. No longer am I just talking or day dreaming. I am writing and growing as a writer. I now know what I have never known before: I am a writer. Nita uses Natalie Goldberg’s writing practice, a no nonsense, fool-proof way to “keep your hand moving” and “write under all circumstances”. Nita is incredibly giving, grounded and compassionate. We are so fortunate to have her in our area. Having taken many writing workshops, including Natalie’s workshop in Taos, New Mexico, I can honestly say Nita Sweeney is the next best thing to studying with Natalie, and a teacher extraordinaire in her own rite.” - Jamie Figueroa writer and massage therapist, Santa Fe, NM.

“Meditation was a plus to the whole experience. Being ‘pushed’ into long timed writings on simple topics was an excellent experience. I shy away from them on my own. These exercises were truly fruitful. I also enjoyed the group, the relationships.” - accountant, Columbiana, Ohio.
