If I hadn't (anxiously) stepped into one of Margo Perin's workshops I would not be the writer I am today. She teaches the nuts and bolts of the craft in a nurturing environment, while most importantly teaching to write from the heart and to persist and persist.

Your teaching was, and continues to be, a big influence on my writing. You teach in such a gentle and loving way, and you are wonderful at creating a supportive environment that allows writers to feel safe as they experiment and learn. I saw my own writing and the writing of other students flourish while in your classes. You always gave constructive critique which helped me grow as a writer. I also learned to be a better editor of my own writing and the writing of others by watching your example. I know that over the years you have influenced many other writers as positively as you influenced me. Thank you.

I have taken workshops with Margo in Italy, Mexico and here in San Francisco. All of them were highly productive, not to mention, a whole lot of fun. Margo is a superb detector of authenticity, a barometer of truth. She provided a creative compass to finding my way toward my own voice. - Rob N., filmmaker
I had no idea that writing would become such a passion, not to mention the healing and understanding that has come with writing stories. Your encouragement gave me the confidence, and your teaching style, along with your gentle spirit, created a safe, fun and supportive atmosphere. I learned so much through your guidance and the stimulating discussions we had in the workshop. Pardon my gushing, but I’ve become a huge fan of yours, not only as a teacher, but as a human being. -- Laura S., psychiatric nurse
Margo pushes you to be a better writer in so many different ways. She meets you where you’re at and helps you figure out where you can go. She really cares about writing and helping her students. - Rita B.,
Margo is awesome! She is thoughtful, caring and non-judgmental. -- Jacob M., Ph.D. candidate
Margo brings out the best in each of her students and respects them profoundly. - Ari P. novelist
