“I've just been doing some brainstorming for the novel I started writing during the course, and it struck me that I hadn't thanked you properly for the past week and all your efforts.
You've revolutionised my view of writing, and taught me more than I could have imagined in such a short space of time.
Not only was your course one of the best educational experiences I've ever had, but your enthusiasm and brilliant sense of humour left me with a smile on my face every day.
I just wanted you to know how grateful I am for such a unique time with such a unique person, and I'm sure the rest of our brilliant group would agree with me.” LR
