Student Testimonials

You will often hear me say that my students rock — because it’s true!

Here’s what recent students have said about working with me.

Christina Katz’s Build a Better Bio course is a well-thought out learning experience that resulted in a clear, structured bio that I can use in multiple places. The first exercise got me thinking about all that I do as a professional, looking at the big picture, and subsequent exercises taught me how to capture the essence of the big picture with more concise language. I have already used my new bio on my website, when I submit articles for publication, and on social media platforms. Having a clear bio has helped in other ways too. I have tuned my elevator speech and spoken with more clarity and confidence about what I do at networking events and during every day exchanges. — Sara Marchesault on Build A Better Bio

I have to say this is one of the most comprehensive and best structured courses on article writing I have ever taken and I have been published professionally over 720 times. This course is well worth the money….Congratulations! — Bill Cornell on The Art Of Short Article Writing

I have learned more in this course than I have in all of the writing books I have on my shelf – and I have plenty. Christina is clear, detailed and easy to follow. The worksheets follow the lesson and make writing the articles easier… I would advise anyone, a newbie or experienced writer to take this course. — Mary Ellen Carmody on Become An Article Idea Factory

This class definitely delivers! With each lecture I found new ideas coming to mind for articles. Already I have one article that I absolutely love that I’ll be sending out soon that came from this course. And I can’t wait to work on the other ones. Christina Katz is a great writing coach. Anyone wanting information and inspiration to write more articles would benefit from this course. — Lara Krupicka on Become An Article Idea Factory

While I’ve taken Christina’s classes in the past and already know what a terrific instructor she is, I was excited to take this class as a refresher at my own pace. And no surprise, I still picked up new tips and ideas. I’m re-energized and can’t wait to get back in and start playing with my new article ideas. I highly recommend this course to anyone, whether you are wanting to break into writing or simply need to break out of a rut in your writing. — Christa Melnyk Hines on Become An Article Idea Factory

Power Up Your Platform Like a Pro makes the whole mystifying platform concept understandable. Although we would all like to have fame and success overnight, Katz encourages us that a solid writer or business platform can be built incrementally through quality work and serving our readers and customers. The course offers basic principles in building a platform, plus specific ways to reach your target audience. I especially appreciated her outline of 7 Qualities of a Successful Platform. I came away from Power Up Your Platform Like a Pro encouraged and motivated. — Sharla Fritz on Power Up Your Platform Like A Pro

My experience taking the Writer Platform Success was like a breath of fresh air from the standard online courses, the format was easy and the content was great. It felt sort of like a short writer’s retreat. I really enjoyed the flow of this class it was straightforward and not complicated at all. In fact, I felt my mindset shift from overwhelm to I could do this platform stuff. I enjoyed it very much. — Casandra McCottrell on Writer Platform Success

Developing a professional writing platform involves a lot of steps, many small but crucial pieces that fit into the overall puzzle that creates success. Katz’s class walks writers through each of those steps and helps them be clear about what they offer, who they offer it to, and how they can better communicate that. I found the lessons easy to take in increments, so it fit into my schedule without me having to set aside one big chunk of time. — Cindy Hudson on Writer Platform Success

I loved the way the content was presented, too. The illustrations Christina used were a clever way to amplify what she was saying without being too complicated. The “low-tech” way she presented them was fun and effective, and more interesting than watching a slick slide show. This class provided an opportunity to refresh my approach to my work/identity in a convenient, affordable, but still challenging way. I highly recommend it! — Marianne Peters on Build A Better Bio
