‘It’s truly the single most transformative experience I’ve had.’
'It was absolutely wonderful: I learned so much and met so many great people. I was genuinely blown away by both the quality of the writing and immense quality of the seminars. The advice from all the facilitators was brilliant.'
'To be afforded the opportunity of a structured writing environment with the calibre of facilitators we had was to me a pure gift.'
'A chance to step out of the daily noise, to get real and think deep, to cup your hands around the precious flame of your writing and nurture that fragile glow.'
