I highly recommend Deana's creative writing classes. I found the course inspiring, fun and thought provoking. Despite having an idea for a novel, I hadn't written for quite some time prior to starting the course. Now I have a clear direction, write regularly and have learnt techniques and skills that have really improved my writing. I found Deana's feedback incredibly helpful and her a fun and inspiring person to spend time with - she is clearly passionate about what she does. I look forward to taking more classes in the future. Thank you.

Response from Deana Luchia:

Thank you for such a lovely review of my course. I really loved your ideas and hope to read your first novel soon!

This was a wonderful and very thoughtful introduction to creative writing. I had drafted some writing of my own prior to the course and the tutor, Deana, structured the course around my work. This has helped me tremendously with my work. The sessions involve Deana explaining some key points and then you have to actually engage in the work. I recommend this course most highly and will certainly be taking further courses with Deana.

Response from Deana Luchia:

Thank you so much, Marcus. I’m really glad you enjoyed the course and found it useful. I look forward to reading more of your work.
