I feel like Nicole has started a CNF revolution, bringing new forms and new voices together. Once again, she has provided a wealth of information that is thoughtfully presented, as well as creative sparks, caring mentorship, and community. Innovative and inspirational, I highly recommend her visual art inspired CNF course for writers interested in finding or fine-tuning their voice and pushing artistic boundaries.

I started writing this year and took Nicole's course on visual art inspired CNF, not knowing what to expect. I was overwhelmed at the beginning, but Nicole made the course material more accessible for me. That's when the fun began. She offers unwavering support and encouragement. I learned new tools and skills, plus I've gained the confidence to call myself a writer.

It's been a privilege and an eye-opener to read the work of some of your current and former students and the writing you've introduced us to in the courses, including your own. I love the way you structure your courses, the types of writers you attract, and the way you work.
