Participant Evaluative Feedback I am very impressed with the selection of poems and essays. Very enjoyable topics. I enjoyed the readings. It was a good time. I would like topics of

depression and tackling challenges. I enjoyed being a part of the group. It was nice and the readings were warm. I feel at peace with much of my past. Im lucky I have so much love in my life, both at home and here at St. Mikes. Thanks for your time.

Thank you. Awesome! Forgiveness, gratitude and appreciation is great. CHLA/ABSC 2017 Reflective Evaluation CHLA/ABSC 2017
