What our students say...

This was a truly excellent course, and Mimi is a fantastic tutor. I feel like my writing has improved so much, and I know where the weaknesses are. Participating gave me a lot of confidence in my own ability, which I didn’t really have before I started. I hugely enjoyed it, and I’m so glad I did it.

Mimi Thebo's inspiring course is the perfect tonic for a writer struggling with starting, finishing or anything in between. Her succinct teaching style gets you straight into the heart of the writing process, and allows you to develop, whatever stage of writing you are at.

I loved this course - I was inspired, educated and encouraged in equal measure.
