“I finished the course feeling like I had worked hard (in a pleasant way) and had learned new skills. I enjoyed the group work, feedback, relating theory to practice, and the slides and extracts.” PT

“I enjoyed the analysis of my own written work, and how it could be developed. Having access to the library was vital.”

“Learning from an experienced writer, and picking up information that I would not have got from a text book, were what I enjoyed the most.” LM
