“The success can be vouched for by the several participants who have gone on to submit works for publication…. Ms. Carducci’s talent, commitment, enthusiasm and integrity are unquestioned. Your patrons will be well served by any program in which she plays a part.” David Sackrider

 “Bobbi Carducci has that unique ability to write beautifully and share that talent with others. She has a special way of helping others without imposing her own unique style. Creative writing is her forte, but I am confident she can be (and is) a fantastic mentor to writers of all ages and genres. With her guidance and patience, my writing has improved significantly; and I am quickly moving toward achieving my 2011 publishing goals.” Suzanne Walls

 “Her lectures were full with current news on how to market oneself and with what is known as the business of writing. She is very knowledgeable about this and clearly gave us all the information we wanted and needed to get our ‘stuff’ out there. Clara Bowman-Jahn

 “I took Bobbi Carducci’s “Writing Memoirs” class… Even though I have been writing for years, I found her class to be extremely helpful. Bobbie Carducci is the type of teacher who immediately puts her students at ease as she begins to weave her instruction through memoir examples, immediately bringing home the points she is trying to make…. I would gladly take another course from her.” Linda Sittig
