Made a subject that I thought above me very accessible. A good balance for the differing knowledge of the group.

A delightful balance of information and beautiful music interspersed with personal memories and anecdotes.

I wanted to write for some time, but I needed help. The creative writing course has provided that help. It has been challenging, stimulating and always a pleasure.

After a career as a lecturer in literature and linguistics, I've enjoyed being a student again. ICE offers quality courses, in lovely surroundings and good company, well served by friendly staff.

It was great that the tutor gave us the space to write and actually work on something and then get feedback on it. His offer to read prior work too really helped in getting the ball rolling. … I loved the staff at the reception, they were so kind and helpful. The catering staff were so courteous and helpfully wonderful. They went out of their way to make things even better. Wished hotels were like this. Wonderful staff.
