Some comments:

"The course has certainly helped me to be freer in my writing."

"I liked how there were no restrictions on how to write, with the main aim being to shape the writing that one was doing already."

"The facilitators were wonderful and it was a pleasure working with them."

"I think this is a very valuable course that you are offering and hope you will

continue to give inspiration to other hesitant would-be writers."

“I’m not shy anymore.”
