“Mentoring has enhanced my writing — beyond my imagination… I needed someone with patience and understanding and I have found Sue so helpful — when I have thought my poem was finished… Sue asks me to dip deep — sometimes I don’t think I can do it… but I do… and the difference it makes to the poem is amazing.   Sue is incredibly sensitive and flexible in her approach to being a mentor and has been the greatest help to me as a poet… I have had more poems published in the year that I have worked with Sue than ever before… I can’t thank her enough.”

Audrey Ardern-Jones, Poet
