I would choose Stephen King. I love how he uses language and imagery in his books. He is an incredible storyteller. I would love to listen to how he transforms his ideas into visions and moves them to the written page.

To me, that would be P. G. Wodehouse. His style and the way he weaves comedy into the simplest of sentences is just amazing.
I'm with you there on P.G. Wodehouse! He is a fantastic writer and his turn of phrase is absolutely brilliant. Most of the time they are sayings I never would've understood outside of his wonderful contexts and odd situations.

I would love to take a class where Markus Zusak was the teacher! The way he writes is just so beautiful to me I’d love to see what he has to teach!

Last year there were two writers who impressed me a lot: Kristin Hannah and Marie Lu. They both transmitted a lot of tenderness and strength in their stories. I would love to have them as writing teachers.

JK Rowling! I want to know how she planned out the Harry potter series and she's the master of foreshadowing!

Dean Koontz - I love his literary technique and vocabulary. His characters and plots are intense.

I wish I could learn from Margaret Atwood.
I have been to grad school and learned from amazing published authors but Margaret Atwood I would say would be the best opportunity to learn.

Stephen King. But I'd probably prefer to just spend the time chatting rather than focusing on the writing lesson.
