Franck says, "Scott Card's Bootcamp taught me how to write and receive literary
criticism. And that skill is directly responsible for the success I've had so far. It
enabled me to join a professional writer's group and hold my own in critiquing
sessions with half a dozen established writers. And this in turn led to polishing my
writing, acquiring an agent, and selling my first three novels. I'll always be
grateful to the Bootcamp and the skillset I learned there."
