"Just a note to thank you all, and especially Anthony, for a very enjoyable and informative course." ~Errol Gottlich"Hi AmandaI really enjoyed the writing course and do feel better equipped to face the writing challenge. Mia was wonderful and good at steering our thinking whilst encouraging us at the same time.Many thanks for the writing links – I’ve been doing the writing prompts as a daily exercise. The prompts bring to the surface memories or ‘things’ I’d not thought about recently, if at all.I also wanted to say thanks for the inspiration and guidance in your notes. I found them clear and helpful. (I’m not allowed to use ‘very’ or exclamation marks!)"~Tamsin Powys

"Please pass my appreciation to both Mia and Amanda. Each day on the respective courses forced my mind into directions I would not ordinarily have explored. Writers write continue to make more and more storytelling possible." ~Deirdre Constance"It was an amazing experience. I learnt a lot and feel inspired to call myself a writer." ~Hlupheka Chabalala"I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the How to Write a Book course and to thank you for an excellent course. I have written 3 books in first draft form, but have always got stuck about the next steps - how to turn a rough draft into a real book. The course has given me the framework to re-visit one of my manuscripts and I am having fun looking at my characters in-depth, reviewing the plot, etc. The course content was exactly what I needed - practical, insightful, inspiring, comprehensive and to the point. It feels great to have the tools to help me move beyond the hurdle that kept me stuck." ~Carolyn Budd
