What people have said about past workshops...

"Just a short and BIG thank you for the one-day workshop on Saturday!  I thoroughly enjoyed it – from the basic principles, to the quotes, to the exercises we had to do and of course the delicious coffee and food.  I felt inspired and energised." - Dave Ramsay, February 2019

“I love to write but find that I don’t always manage to make time to do it. Your workshops offer the time and space and I find being around people who also enjoy writing inspires me to write more. I especially like it when we all share what we have written and can get feedback from like-minded people.”  - Mary 


"Thanks for everything. I found it extremely useful." - Rina

“This workshop has helped me to get disciplined in my writing and to actually start finishing the children's stories that I have always wanted to write.”  - Lindie
