"If it were not for Gelfand, I would not have my Oscar or Emmy awards.”
“Bruce is a strong, loving, nurturing teacher who has helped me to tackle my writing demons, expand my craft and take risks. I love the specificity of his notes and feedback, along with the gentle thoughtful encouragement. His intuition is scary good – I trust the leaps that he’s encouraged me to make and I’ve learned a great deal. He’s always been available to me for my special questions outside of class and I am genuinely inspired by the writing prompts that he provides. Awesome teacher, awesome man.”
"Before joining Bruce's A Writers' Hour I had convinced myself that my tired, soul-beaten voice was no longer worthy of expression. But Bruce is a mensch. He finds beauty in every creative venture. He makes writing fun. His workshop is a greenhouse where seeds are planted, plants are nurtured, artists are nourished. The greatest joy of being part of Bruce's group is to hear other remarkable, searching, celebratory voices and to be reminded, with absolute clarity, that my voice has its own distinct flavor, perspective, and worth."
"In Bruce's class you will write about that thing you don't want to write about. Because that thing scares you too much. Take his workshop and write about that thing! "
"I am consistently blown away by the work that is produced in Bruce's workshop! The use of unique prompts leading into 15 minutes of "in the moment" writing seems to allow us all to tap into our true voices and to be completely present in our work. I walk away from each workshop feeling inspired by the work of those around me, as well as by my own. It's really all about finding your voice, and I love that."
"Bruce has a wonderful way of eliciting creative responses from participants through encouragement, positive feedback, and creative suggestion. His outstanding ability to listen with sensitivity and clarity is inspiring. Bruce’s classes are small so that everyone has time to share their writing and thoughts. I highly recommended “A Writers’ Hour" for anyone wanting to partake of the joy of writing with Soul.”

No matter where you are in your journey as a writer, Bruce Gelfand will skillfully and soulfully guide you to unleash your voice and unfurl the force of writing nature inside you.<br />Expect miracles. A journey of profound worth awaits you. With a Master. Your voice. Your words. Your ideas captured in story to share. The world needs you, your authentic voice and your stories. Bruce knows this. This is yet another precious trait that sets him apart from all other coaches. Let Bruce empower you like he has empowered me - and countless others - to claim our voices. Bruce Gelfand, master writing coach, secret weapon for writers, voice extractor."
"Bruce is one of the best teachers I have ever had. He taught me new ways to think about my writing, specifically how to not only think about what my characters were saying on the page but also what they were saying through their actions, both consciously and unconsciously. He saw who I was and my potential as a writer and helped me in ways that no one had helped me before. On top of all this, he's a very dear friend who I think the world of."
