JUST RECEIVED WORD from Layne Bruce, Executive Director of the Mississipi Press Assn. I had asked Layne to let me know about feedback from my workshop there in mid-June.
From Layne’s e-mail:
“A total of 17 individuals who took part in our post-convention survey responded to the item regarding your session. Of those, 6 rated the session “excellent” (highest mark); 5 rated it “very good;” 5 rated it “good;” and 1 marked it “poor.” None marked it as “fair.”
“This is a good response from the crowd in terms of the actual number of responses we typically receive. It also is an exceptional speaker rating from our crowd.
“Thanks very much for being a part of the convention. We look forward to working with you in the future.”
Dunno what the story is behind the “poor” rating—probably something I said.
I’ll take 16-out-of-17 any day!
