Well aside from it being cancelled about 2 hours before it started it was pretty good. I felt like I sitting was on my couch watching a rerun of the Mary Tyler Moore show on Hulu.

The Storytelling Fundamentals with Charley Simpson was wonderful. I enjoyed the way she engaged all of us and encouraged our own individualistic styles. I would definitely continue studying with her!
