    What Our Students Say

    • I recently completed the Writers' News Home Study Becoming a Successful Writer course and was delighted to receive my certificate of completion. I found the course both enjoyable and challenging - a lot of hard work, but ultimately very rewarding. My tutor, Sue Johnson, was great and I found her comments, encouragement and positive criticism extremely helpful. The assignments gave me the chance to try different types of writing and I had to develop a more disciplined approach to my writing to ensure I was able to finish the course within the two years. Most of all, I have gained confidence. I still have a long way to go but I have learned a lot and now feel confident enough to start sending out some of my work and to enter competitions.

I am so fortunate to have found someone who knows how to criticize my work 'properly'; in other words, honestly
