Let me say a few words about Jayne. I took a class with Jayne, and I was lucky—inclement weather kept everyone else away. She gave me a whole new perspective on what I was doing. Her enthusiasm was contagious, and her love for her craft made her a great teacher. I had to share her subsequently, and every class was a revelation.

Jayne listens incisively, responding with clear and targeted feedback. She guides with conviction about form and voice, honed by decades of deep reading and writing. And she is sensitive to the individual student— knowing when to nudge, when to step back, when to get specific, when to demand more. Finally, she is a brilliant editor!
