- Comments from the 2003 Bay Area Writers League Conference


"…At our recent conference, Kimberly Morris did an outstanding job facilitating writing workshops and shared her expertise with both experienced and novice writers. We asked our attendees to critique all conference events, and Kimberly consistently received very high ratings. On a personal note, I attended one of her sessions and followed up with questions one-on-one. Her knowledge of bringing a project from conception to publication is invaluable. In addition, her writing, editing, and publishing experience is a rare combination and a valuable asset in any writing/publishing endeavor."

"…I have known Kimberly Morris for eight years. During this time she has selflessly given of herself to support the Museum and specifically science education. Ms. Morris is a natural in informal science education for two reasons, firstly to communicate information - which is the easy part - but secondly to communicate this information in a fun and entertaining manner - which the more difficult of the two. I have also participated in several of her facilitated creative writing workshops with children. It is always different and always fun. She makes it look easy…"

"Kimberly Morris … gives an animated, educational, and entertaining look at the process of writing. She gets her audience actively involved … engaging them in the development of a story by using three words: "but"; "and"; and "so".   Watching Ms. Morris inspire the creativity and imagination of children is an incredible experience … and children interested in writing will be able to use her techniques to develop and improve their own style."

"…My second graders were so excited about writing that they turned around and wrote narratives of their own. They produced some of the best writing they had done all year! …The presentation would be ideal for the beginning of the school year as a TAAS writing motivator… I have never seen anyone make writing look as simple and as much fun as Kimberly Morris!"

“Ms. Morris’s presentation…easily unites a lesson with a playful approach that can meet the learning levels of any audience members….”

"I really enjoyed Kimberly Morris. She had wonderful ideas for writing stories and would be an excellent teacher! (Not that she would give up her career) … but she inspires students to come up with creative ideas."

"… Dynamic and inspirational! … The energy created during her presentation lives well past her departure and can be capitalized on while the creative impulses are snapping. Students want to try the narrative writing strategy independently and … discover they have more ability than they believed …Naturally, this self-confidence in writing can transcend the narrative and extend to other … academic content areas, TAAS testing, personal communication, and ultimately, business professions … She breathes a spark into a flame which language teachers can fan to fire."

“Thanks for your great interactive presentation on writing to our group of physically challenged adults. The way you blended in humor, related to them, and helped them to write a story of their own was terrific. Although most of the group has difficulty with their speech, they responded to you so enthusiastically. They were talking about you and your subject for days afterward. They even analyzed the movie, The Horse Whisperer, using your advice.

"I attended one of Kim's workshops and came away much more focused and energized about prioritizing and tackling workplace projects. In the six months since I attended Kim's workshop my work life has dramatically improved. The workshop helped me gain perspective on challenges at work and enabled me to see beyond the immediate issues to a greater vision of the big picture. One of the most worthwhile seminars that I've ever attended".

“I really enjoyed Kimberly Morris's presentation, which will not only help me untie some embedded knots in some of my stories, but help me teach reluctant struggling writers at my grade school as well."
