TESTIMONIALS

"Having Maya & Amy come to my school was AMAZING. Their captivating presentation showed the children - even the most reluctant ones - that they all can be writers. I was even inspired to purchase a typewriter to use in my writer's corner."  Mary Pontrella, 4th grade teacher Yantacaw Elementary School

 "You both have a fantastic way of speaking to students. You treat them like the smart inquisitive people that they are and you let them know their thoughts and words are important and interesting to you. They were fascinated with the typewriters. Thank you for enriching our curriculum and inspiring our students to keep writing." - Kristina Fulton, Joyce Kilmer Elementary School, Mahwah, NJ

"Amy and Maya were invited to attend the Mark Conference at Rutgers University. The students absolutely loved their activities. When the students were invited to take part in a tandem poetry session they were fully engaged. They surrounded the table and did not want to leave! I would highly recommend this program for anyone wanting to make a "mark" on a student's world."  Stephanie Cwynar, Rutgers University
