After spending a day at a Barry Lane workshop, Lucy Calkins said:  "Barry Lane is one of the finest speakers on the teaching of writing. His combination of warmth, insight, and energy is magical. My colleagues and I left our day with Barry with full hearts and high spirits, ready to bring new strategies and new energy into our writing workshops."
