“I have always wanted to write but I lacked the confidence to do so. Olive’s course changed that. It opened my eyes to a world of infinite imagination. Each module focused on a specific quality or technique in creative writing. Through exercises given each week, I could experiment and give voice to my creations. Olive not only gave me the tools to do so, she sharpened them too.” Gary
"If unlocking the writer within is key to the writing process, Geraldine has succeeded. I feel I have stepped out of my life for a time, whirled about some amazing universe, and returned to earth still pirouetting. The beauty of Geraldine’s teaching lies in the apparent simplicity of her approach. She took the fear from the writing and offered constructive commentary at each stage...She is truly inspiring."
