  • Kerry and Ken run fantastic sessions, well structured, fun and supportive. I have loved coming and would encourage anyone young or old to come along and exercise their imagination.

  • I felt the course was very useful. It also served to make me more disciplined in my writing.

  • This course has enabled me to see that I can write rather than just thinking about it. If you feel there is a book in you then this is the place to start. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Such good fun and creative.

  • Excellent workshops giving a great mix of teaching and the opportunity to write.

  • Gives you the chance to let the words flow and the imagination to run free.

  • The course was focused, challenging and thoroughly enjoyable with expert delivery which had me writing in ways I didn't know I could. Fantastic, thank you.
