Student of the Year 2019!

For some this will involve trying to find more ‘me time’, or networking and attending writing events. For others it might involve enrolling on a writing course – either face-to-face or by distance learning.

I’m no expert on the face-to-face variety, but I do have years of experience with distance learning so I’d just like to offer some tips that you might want to consider before taking the plunge, as some courses on offer are incredibly expensive and you don’t want to make a mistake.
