"Sossity is as hard-hitting off the stage as she is on it. She challenges all her workshop participants to push and stretch, often through perfectly timed prompts that speak directly to each recipient … Each time I’ve left with a notebook full of ideas and several pieces that are such alive expressions of that welcoming, shared space."  Read more testimonials.
