It is my pleasure to recommend Diana as a writing teacher and coach. Her effervescence and her enthusiasm for sharing her love of writing are, in my opinion, among the highest qualifications for a mentor in this art.

Diana ist eine leidenschaftliche Autorin und Dozentin. Sie schafft eine wunderbar warme, vertrauensvolle Atmosphäre in ihren Kursen und bereitet sich akribisch mit eigenen Lessons, Beispieltexten und Schreibübungen vor. Dadurch erhalten die Stunden einen guten Ablauf. Ich schätze auch, dass sie Raum für Diskussionen und Feedback gibt. Es ist eine intensive Zeit, und wir haben alle viel Spaß daran.

Diana’s attitude to anyone who wants to express themselves with words is incredibly encouraging, and she’s able to give both enlightening hints and helpful criticism.

As a fellow member of a small writing group, she gave me feedback on my writing, which I found not only incredibly helpful but professional and to the point.

I met Diana Radovan through an advanced writing course at the University of Calgary. As an editor, Diana uses her literary experience and her analytical mind to offer specific and useful feedback and suggestions that strengthen the writings of her peers. As a writer, Diana creates original engaging texts with tangible images and words. She is a storyteller, a master of tone and mood, a magic-maker.

Diana Radovan writes from the heart. Drawing on her experience as an international seeker, she offers a compelling mixture of adventure, insight, and honesty. She possesses an innate facility with language, and her passion for the written word makes her a natural teacher and advocate. And did I mention that she has a wonderful sense of humour?

Adventurous in spirit, a nature lover, a city wanderer, a photographer, and a bright mind, Diana’s outlook is truly international. In these times especially, her story, her many stories, need to be written and heard.

Diana hat die wunderbare “Schreibzeit” an der Ostsee besucht. Hier habe ich ihr Kreativtalent kennenlernen dürfen. Ihre multikulturellen Texte waren eine wunderbare Bereicherung für alle. Über die Jahre hat sie konsequent weiter an ihrem Schreiben gearbeitet und sich ihre Erfolge verdient!

Writers who have had the privilege of working with Diana Radovan in The Story Intensive know her to be smart, disciplined, and full of enchanted thoughts about writing practice. Her unusual combination of passions — including her academic experience and her reverence for mystery — makes her a special writer and teacher.

Unii spun că scrisul ține numai şi numai de talent. Alții, că nu ai cum să ajungi să scrii mişto dacă nu munceşti. Să lăsăm, aşadar, scrisul să ne controleze sau să-l ținem sub control? Diana e unul dintre cei care ştiu răspunsul, iar faptul că ştie (şi vrea) să-l transmită şi altora e, poate, cea mai tare chestie.
