Testimonials for March 2017 4-week writing course 'From First Draft to Polished Prose':

'With each workshop covering a different aspect of writing in the genre, the short story-focused workshops that I have attended have been informative, supportive and encouraging, giving each participant a chance to present, share and discuss their own work and that of others. An inspiring setting for creativity!'


'I really enjoyed the sessions at The Paintpot - a chance to meet interesting people and have time to do a little creative thinking.  Thank you for organising the course, I enjoyed it enormously.'

‘My writing has developed considerably since attending the Thoughttree workshops. I now have the confidence to tackle writing in different genres and I have gained the self-belief in my work to enter my short stories for regional and national writing competitions. I would thoroughly recommend the workshops to both experienced and aspiring writers!’
