What our participants say…
It brought back a lot of memories… Things I’d forgotten about. I enjoyed it all.
It was great Nichola! Hugged my soul.
I felt supported and encouraged and that you lived up to all your promises.
I confess I chose this course because of the ‘no feedback’ rule. It’s good to start building confidence.
The group dynamics were excellent and propelled me forward to take risks. The non-judgemental ground rules enabled us to develop a deep trust in the group very quickly which allowed us to explore and release deep emotions in our creative journeys.
I think these are techniques that could be useful on a lifelong basis – so I just wanted to thank you so much for Creative Writes. It’s the best.
Thanks for a great workshop on colour last night! I was amazed at how my writing came to life through using colour as an inspiration. It was as if the colour was an anchor, helping me to paint a very specific picture.At the same time, I was amazed how far we could go with a particular colour as a starting point .With colour as a doorway, I was able to include many levels of the imagination: memory, mythical stories, and collective associations. It was like opening a treasure box and discovering all sorts of wonderful things inside.
I feel exhausted but a real buzz after the session. It was so much more enjoyable and useful than I had anticipated (because of my own anxieties). Thank you for creating the safe environment that helped me to delve into my writing and experiences. The wonderful exercises were a real treat and eye opener.
