PAST STUDENTS SAY:
"Thank you for making the course so relaxed and rigorous, calm and intense, challenging and warmly supportive. "
"I would wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning about the craft of nonfiction, memoir and essay writing. What’s more, I’d recommend it to writers and artists looking to step out of their comfort zone and explore a challenging but rewarding form of creative expression, one with lots of ideas and approaches which can be applied to writing in general."
"I am deeply grateful to you for being our teacher and guide. You were always kind. I'm so happy I took the decision to ask you for a place in the workshop."
"The story I want to write has been pushed around my table for a few years now. This course helped me to get started and stop procrastinating. I am always hindered by ‘the ghosts in the room’ when it comes to writing memoir, and also a constant fear of offending people and a desire to handle the material as sensitively as possible. With this course I got the project started"
