Testimonials

"The creative writing workshop was great fun and very inspirational. We could adapt suggested topics and themes to attempt our first "writing effort". The tutor was very engaging and passed on not only her own personal experiences of writing professionally, but also "top tips" on how we all might progress our writing efforts. It gave me the confidence to take up writing a journal at home for my own pleasure."

"A great experience! Thank you!" Rosanna [Rachel]
