Comments from Our Creative Writing Class of 2022

A glorious creative writing retreat in Bisenti, Abruzzo,  What a week we had! Our amazing creative writing tutor kept us hard at work while Wendy's endless enthusiasm ensured we had a lot of fun. Further inspiration from visiting author Angela Petch and guest authors Cathy Rentzenbrink, Katherine Hutton Mezzacappa and Elizabeth Buchan K (UK)

The week was pleasurable, rewarding and inspiring; very well organised; fun filled and diverting. More importantly, lots of encouragement to improve my writing.

Let me say how much I enjoyed the retreat. Thanks for organizing it and looking after me. Its given me the encouragement to plow on.


This has been a special week that I will never forget! 


I will be using things I learned here for the rest of my life.



My week was insightful, thought-provoking and fun. Wendy's enthusiasm and positive attitude is infectious and her ability to "go the extra mile" to ensure all requests and needs were catered for is a testament to her experience and compassion. Our tutor's abiltiy to teach you how to re-think your own work, so that improvements shine through in such a short period of time, was nothing short of amazing. The benefit of being alongside other writers of varying writing styles, ideas and skill sets added to the whole experience and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this to anyone wishing to improve the presentation of their work. Thankyou  H (UK)
