An engaging, thought-provoking, superbly structured course led by a dynamic and encouraging teacher. I would recommend this course to anybody interested in developing their creative writing skills.

Writing your World student, Summer 2021

The 'Writing Your World' course has really inspired me to dedicate more of my time and energy to fiction. And more than that, has helped broaden my reading – introducing me to new authors as well as writing on craft. Highly recommended and extremely good value for money!
