"Writers Write was a defining four days in my life. The passion for writing was infectious but tempered by down-to-earth common sense advice. Perfect for adults." ~Niki Sampson
"Writers Write was absolutely brilliant. More than I expected. The facilitator was knowledgeable, well read, with impeccable background information." ~Paulina Mphasi
"Just a note to thank you all, and especially Anthony, for a very enjoyable and informative course." ~Errol Gottlich
I 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!)"
"It was informative and entertaining. I feel inspired and motivated. Mia was engaging and funny, providing great anecdotes and examples." ~Priya Pitamber

"Writers Write is practical, well thought out, concise, focused, and interesting. The formula works fabulously." ~Stewart
"This was awesome. From the safe environment to the solid information. I enjoyed being stretched and surprised myself. I think I'm going to write a story about a certain course facilitator being cloned for a 'take home' version. The course should be prescribed for all would-be authors." ~Colette Vosloo
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
