After two hours with Caroline a vague idea of a book became on paper reality. She gave me structure, guidelines and asked questions that enabled me to begin writing. She was the turning point in my becoming an author.

Caroline keeps gently prodding and encouraging until she draws out of you what it is you’re trying to write and helps you to keep narrowing it down until you have something definite to get your teeth into.
I think I’d otherwise be wandering around dreamily thinking about my novel and never writing anything satisfying. Mentoring sessions are really relaxed and enjoyable but also focused, productive and motivating. If you’re ready to commit to writing that novel but need support along the way, Caroline’s your lady!

Caroline helped me shape and refine a short story, in lengthy discussion of structure, tone and style. Her suggestions were helpful and provocative, improving the end result immeasurably.

FROM IDEA TO STORY: NOVEL WRITING MADE EASY (MY ONLINE COURSE)
This is inspiring
I’ve tried and failed to complete writing courses in the past but this one is different. It takes you into the depths of the writer’s mind, giving renewed insight into the actual process of writing a novel. Not only is the course encouraging and to-the-point, it’s also practical with simple but effective templates and exercises. Caroline brings the process of writing a novel to life, so much so that by the end of the course I felt like something had lit up and I was ready to start writing again in earnest.
I found this course incredibly helpful. I was very much confused and always wondered how the process of writing a book or any large piece of work happened. This course helped so much in explaining some key questions that I hadn’t received an answer to by myself or by others. So, that’s why the 5 star rating!
“This course was well presented, retains one’s interest and is most informative. It covers the creative process and practical matters surrounding writing fiction and includes some really useful practice exercises that will help you to find your own writing voice.”
‘I found this course to be enlightening and a real good foundation to learn before starting my first novel. Caroline is a great instructor and leads the students through the steps and actually gets you involved in the creative process through out the course. She also included some really good exercises and notes that you can download. Really enjoyed this course, thank you!’
CREATIVE WRITING COURSE
I really enjoyed the Creative Writing course I did with Caroline. The exercises she had planned for us really got my imagination firing and I had a lot of fun playing around with them. I pleasantly surprised myself with the things I came up with and Caroline’s encouragement and her ability to expand on our ideas and help to develop them was really inspiring!

The tutor was excellent and I have learnt a huge amount about creative writing techniques. I have loved every minute, and I do hope the course returns at a later date for more creative writing with Caroline.
Katie Keeble – February 2017
I found the classes enjoyable and challenging. Caroline’s passion for writing is infectious and inspirational. The writing process, characters, structure and plot, suddenly seemed clearer to me and found I was able to complete a short story for the first time.
Julie Cutter – February 2017
I have had so much fun being introduced to the art of creative writing through the class. I have resolved to take writing seriously… I found the tips Caroline gave us as per way of the writing process most useful.

I enjoyed the course and felt it benefited my writing as well. It was well organised and structured and the atmosphere was pleasant.
Simon Bellow – February 2017
‘A very constructive and informative session. Lots of interesting tips re: preparation, planning, editing, descriptive text, etc. So much to think about – the “spark” has now returned and I now feel inspired to continue with my book. Caroline is a very good teacher, knowledgeable and excellent at explaining ways to help improve on writing techniques coupled with “bucket loads” of enthusiasm. Looking forward to further sessions.’

It was very inspiring and encouraging. Caroline shared her experience as a writer and a teacher. She provided very useful recommendations to improve and develop our style. I’ve already used Caroline’s tips/recommendations and thank her a lot for them. I would definitely recommend coming to her workshops.

The workshop was fun and informative on creative writing. The writing exercises were interesting to say the least and I enjoyed how the workshop progressed.
