Here are some testimonials from previous participants to give you a flavour of the atmosphere of the courses. If any of you recognise your own words, thanks again!

“A brilliant course. Compact and practical (just what I wanted) but with enough room to explore individual participant’s writing. Jessica is very generous with her time and feedback and the reading examples were spot on. I would highly recommend this course as an excellent way to start writing that play you have in mind!”

“A great course. Brilliant notes and Jessica was very generous with her time and knowledge. There was also a lovely atmosphere and our little group enjoyed lots of tea & chocolate biscuits to fuel the creativity!!”

“Really enjoyed and learned so much from doing this course. Jessica is very generous with her time, knowledge and feedback and makes writing that play much less daunting. An equally lovely and sharing group of people was the cherry on top.”

“A great course, Jessica’s enthusiasm was contagious! It opened me up to other styles of play-writing, some great choices of writing. It has given me the motivation and confidence to get going and keep going until the play is complete!”
