Here’s some feedback from a recent course participant in Canberra: “Thanks so much for a fantastic weekend. I learned more than I expected and left extremely inspired. I’m guessing that you must have a lot of students who contact you, but I would like to share something with you: It was wonderful to have been in a room with writers, and to be free to write in the way you encouraged. It was an opportunity that I am extremely grateful for. Thank you so much.” Genevieve Kenneally, Canberra
