What have some of the Monday Night Creative Writing Class participants said?

‘The workshop made creativity easy.’

‘Geoffrey removed the blocks we set up for ourselves that stop us from doing what we want to do.’

‘It was great looking around the room full of people so happy to see themselves as writers, with new tools and perspectives, and lots of blocks removed.’

‘At first I felt as if I wasn’t taking anything in, but by the end of the second class, without even realising it, I’ve written an outline for a story. Just like that! I’m already starting to think about where this story can go.’

‘I’ve really enjoyed these classes and meeting other aspiring writers. I am looking forward to building more skills for my writing toolkit.’
