Comments from students:

Amanda: I was floundering with my writing and Alison’s classes helped me find confidence and inspiration. Her commitment to writing as a tool for exploring your own responses to life is skilful and supportive. Each group is always full of interesting, kind and insightful people – I cannot recommend these classes highly enough.

Jill: I enjoyed the course immensely and the small group made it a pleasure as we got to know each other very quickly. I certainly grew in confidence as the weeks progressed and now have a writing project which I’m pursuing with interest and enthusiasm. This is a great place to start!
