School workshop

"I just wanted to say a huge “Thank you” for everything, and I hope you enjoyed the day. I have not seen the first group so engaged in a long while, and it has made me to re-think how we can keep that going next year."  Maggie Thomas, Librarian, Bacon's College, London 2015

Workshops 2019

"I love going to Joan’s classes. Using activities as varied as spontaneously writing beat poetry to crafting convincing dialogue, she helps students to find their own voice and the confidence to express it. As well as sound advice about the technical side of writing and endless encouragement, Joan brings light and liveliness to the sessions which are always stimulating and inspiring." Julia Mortimer 2019
