  • 'Small group discussions, mixed with wider research, was an excellent way to engage everyone and explore new techniques in teaching novels.'
  • 'This honestly felt more like a holiday where I learned a lot about creative writing, rather than a dull professional obligation...I picked up invaluable creative writing tips that I have already used to great success in the classroom.'                                           
  • 'Can quite honestly say it was the best PD event that I have ever attended.'
