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.

Your courses have turned me – a desultory and lazy reader – into one more focussed. The excellent tutors and fellow students have opened up to me a world previously unimagined.

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