"I have learnt that I can sit and write about whatever is asked of me. I have more confidence in my ability and I absolutely love writing now, even when the subject matter makes me groan internally. I enjoy hearing what others have written and getting to know and understand their style of writing and thinking about what would have improved mine and theirs. I have started thinking throughout the week about what I have written and what I would like to write."
"This series has taken me to a secret side of London along the Regents Canal. It’s shown me the horrors of the humanitarian crisis in the Middle East. It’s taken me back to the Gunpowder Plot. I’ve seen stunning autumnal colours and I’ve felt the cold of winter. I’ve revisited my 1970s childhood and I’ve seen the light and dark sides of Christmas. So yes, I think it has done what it said on the tin. And more."
"Sharon has been a great catalyst for re-kindling my writing, across various formats. She is inspiring, enthusiastic, encouraging, and supportive."
"Thank you for the taster morning. It was a real eye opener (& heart opener) for me."
