“If a writer is not offending someone, then they are not doing their job”

Praise From Students
“I can say with complete authority that this is a fantastic course, and Patrick is a wonderful teacher. He didn’t even pay me to say this.”
“Patrick O’Neil pushes you to do your best and provides valuable feedback. The course I took was attended by both beginners (like me) and people with significantly more experience and he worked with each of us individually and as a class. Oh, and he did pay me to say this, but only the first installment. Bastard shorted me and I still feel the need to thank him – that’s how good he is.”
“I have taken Creative Nonfiction classes with Patrick O’Neil and I highly recommend him. Based on his advice and counsel, I consider him a mentor and friend.”
