“Tamara has provided spectacular leadership at the Portsmouth Writers Salon, keeping members focused on its mission of growing them as writers while showing flexibility to tailor meetings and feedback to the needs of the individuals involved. The proof is in the pudding–the high number of pieces published by many members and the growth of all members as a direct result of participation in the PWS.” – Zakariah Johnson
