"I have thoroughly enjoyed this course.  I have always wanted to write a book and I cant believe I have written a third and have a clear plan for the rest and an idea to expand it to a trilogy.  I couldn't have done this without the course and would like to thank Maria for all her hard work and encouragement.  I would thoroughly recommend this course for anyone who believes 'they have a novel in them.' 

"It's going to be a long summer without my class to look forwards to!  Thanks Maria, Alison

I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt so much." Peter
