Reviews from Past Students
‘Excellent course. It was a valuable learning experience and left me wanting to do more and write more.’ – Mark Chivers
‘Enthralling. "200-300 words every day" sounds doable, and it is. But the choosing and placing of those words into an order never seen before: that's the beauty and agony of telling a story for the first time.’ – Clive Ritchie
‘I would describe myself as a writing toddler and The Writers College as a sensitive and insightful nanny who made me discover that I can climb stairs - the experience was exhilarating.’ – Claudia Bolz
‘The course exceeded my expectations and provided the structure and motivation to keep writing. Fun, challenging, full of energy. Thank you for the journey.’ – Judy Port
‘I feel like my Muse had a makeover: fresh, happier and definitely wiser.’ – Princy Kiran
