As a beginner writer, you can read books about writing but can't pinpoint particular problems. Your tutor can.

Please pass on my gratitude to Michelle for her constructive feedback. She always makes some really helpful points and I’ll be really sad when this course comes to an end! I feel as though I’ve learned so much.

Genuine criticism, as a result of which I have felt most encouraged to pursue certain aspects of writing.
