"I just wanted to tell you what a fantastic start to a new pastime your creative writing workshops last year were. I loved the intimacy of our class and formed lasting friendships. From this launch point, my year of discovering writing has led me to attend other workshops, join Hunter Writers ( Centre) and join a writers group. And drum roll..the photographic image I started to write from in your workshop is now a full on story in progress! Can thoroughly recommend your workshops."
I recently attended a Workshop hosted by Michelle for Creative Writing - it was a fabulous and nurturing event. Michelle was a wonderful facilitator tapping into our creative energy through interesting and amusing tasks - such a refreshing approach.
It was a great day and much was gained - writers knots untied and insight gained into the deeper self, contained for so long!
You were terrific!
