Here are some comments from our students. Their views say more about the course and tuition service than we ever could.

Angela Bradley"It seemed a massive step, at a maturing age, to take on a writing course and, faced with all the reading matter and first assignment, I wondered what madness had thus inspired me.

“But I persevered, appreciating the expert opinions and advice of my tutors and the confidence their comments gave me.

“Now on my third course, I look back on my doubt with amusement, at my successes with amazement and my future writing with excitement. I’m currently working my way through the Biographies, Memoirs and Family Histories course. I have planned a book about female composers and written the first chapter. I almost feel like a peeping Tom, delving into the lives, loves and ambitions of a number of women who were once just names and now seem like intimate friends.”

Angela Bradley

Angela has also studied The Comprehensive Creative Writing course and The Art of Writing Poetry course.

All the articles she has written and 60 of her poems have been published.

“The service is first rate. I am particularly struck by my tutor’s friendliness. Her warmth shows through in such a way that I know I am not simply an enrolment number.”
John Wileman

“I like being able to work at my own pace. My tutor is friendly and has been very encouraging. On the occasion that I had to phone The Writers Bureau, the person I dealt with was very obliging and helpful”
Jayne Blyth

“Advice from my tutor is invaluable and I feel I have learnt a lot. I am improving my writing with each assignment.”
Gillian Hamer

“The service is good. I’m comfortable with my tutor – in fact very comfortable.”
David Nyapinda

"The course has helped me write a story that evokes strong emotions; the constructive but motivational feedback I received from The Writers Bureau has helped me knock down the barriers to self-doubt. Recently, I held my first book launch where I talked about how and why I wrote my story."
