'Each step of Alison's creative writing course was full of vital information for anyone wanting to be published. Each class ended in achievement for everyone. This course is a must for anyone wanting to write - a well structured course that encourages creativity and motivation.'  Liz Lee - former student.
"The Creative Writing Course with Alison, has been an excellent way of gaining confidence and improving my writing skills, meeting like minded people, sharing stories and tips for publication, competitions, and writing events going on in the area."  Bev Jones -  former student.
Dear Alison, I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your workshop on short stories. The exercises were inspiring and fun and gave me lots of ideas on how to get started. I came away feeling motivated to get writing.....Thank you! AW

 Alison's classes are a great way of improving your writing, whether beginner or an 'old hand'.  Through class based writing activities and opportunities to discuss their own work in a supportive environment, each student makes progress.  Furthermore, Alison's up-to-date knowledge of the market ensures help in placing your writing; I've had three articles accepted by the Guardian newspaper.  I've also won first prize in a local short story competition and taken third prize in an International Life Writing competition (for which I won £500 and inclusion in an anthology published as an ebook).  Alison's encouragement and enthusiasm have given me the confidence to go for it and see myself as an author.  She can do the same for you.  Lynn Brand - former student.

For individual in depth critiques of short stories you can contact me via this website for details of my charges - see contacts page.
