WHAT STUDENTS SAY...


Since Write like a Grrrl teamed up with For Book’s Sake in 2014, over one hundred women across the UK have graduated from our creative writing courses. Here’s some of their feedback…

 

☆”Kerry Ryan’s Write Like a Grrrl workshops were perfectly pitched, informative, inclusive, and empowering. Kerry creates a non-threatening space to explore our ideas and produce valuable work in class. Her teaching style is informal and supportive – exactly what we need as adult students. “ Angela

 

 “I really enjoyed Kerry’s writing workshops, mainly because she created a conducive atmosphere for writing, making it friendly and collaborative.  It was also a good mixture of practical exercises and useful advice. I would definitely attend a course run by Kerry again.” Erica

 


☆ “The course was fantastic. Without Kerry’s great lesson on ‘How to start writing and keep going’ I would not be writing at all, but I have now managed to do so regularly for the last year.”  Liz
