That is utterly unbelievable.  What a pathetic lot of juvenile, 
ungrateful, UNKNOWING, clueless idiots.  I don't even know where to 
start.  How about why  bother to take a writing workshop if you can't 
take honest criticism?  It pains me, pains me deeply to read that Mr. 
Wolfe was treated that way.  He is a writer of the first caliber, a 
truly unknown legend.  Those hacks should be grateful he even bothered 
to read their most likely unreadable tripe.  Personally, I don't have 
much use for writing workshops.  I think writing is far too individual 
an art and the workshops are full of whiny idiots like these.  I'll end 
this now with my paraphrase of Bukowski-  Where is something 
interesting to read?   Wait.  Don't tell me.  I know. You wrote it.

Sadly true
