If you have a large project you are working on and would appreciate specific feedback and input, Sue offers one to one mentoring.
Here is what Sue’s students say about her classes:
“During her writing courses, Sue always stimulates our creativity by many means, including visiting places of local interest. Last autumn we visited All Saints’ Church and it was while shuffling through the leaves and looking at the old gravestones, that the idea of “Waiting” started to take shape. Sue encouraged me to send it to Writers’ Forum, I took the leap into the unknown, and to my delight, they published it.”
“I love coming to Sue’s creative writing class. It’s very relaxed and friendly and after the first week I didn’t mind reading what I’d written to others in the group. We’ve covered prose and different forms of poetry, and as an extra we’ve even done bookmaking with a guest tutor which I really enjoyed!”
Tessa, King’s Lynn
“There is much sharing, comfortable sharing… There is respect for each other’s work and a distinct feeling of camaraderie.”
“I‘ve found it fascinating how class discussion and exercises generate both interesting work and other unrelated ideas to pursue individually; how some ideas arrive nearly fully-formed while others need the individual support and feedback from Sue and the rest of the group to bring to a satisfactory conclusion.”
Phil, Blackborough End, Norfolk
“Creative writing is something I’ve thought about doing for a long time and I really enjoy Sue’s sessions, so it was wonderful to find such a friendly, supportive writing group locally. Sue’s experience and knowledge shines through in the feedback she gives and has given me the confidence to write things I would never have imagined myself capable of.”
Ghyslaine, King’s Lynn
