Testimonials for Ink Academy and founding tutor, Marina Kemp
I came to Ink Academy as a beginning fiction writer with zero training and with a raw and untutored first attempt at a novel in hand. Although I had already spent a lot of time on the project, I had very little idea how to go about creating a novel that anyone would want to read. I knew I needed to learn more about the craft of fiction writing.
The course with Marina turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. I found Marina to be thoughtful and insightful and encouraging, and we developed a fantastic rapport from the beginning. She was able to identify weaknesses quickly and help me to eliminate them from my writing. She also helped me to think more deeply about my characters and story structure. Her comments were always incredibly helpful.
She always read my submissions with great care and attention — and, perhaps most importantly, with a great deal of sympathy as well. She often seemed to know more about my characters than I did. She truly helped me bring my work to the next level, and I came away with a much deeper understanding of my work and the craft of fiction writing. By the end of the course, I felt energized and motivated — and well-prepared — to continue improving my draft. Working with Marina was an excellent experience all around.
