I recently completed the Writing Magazine 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.Ann Dixon - 10/02/2016
Thanks very much for the excellent [free welcome gift] book on historic fiction. After reading it I feel like I'm in Aladdin's cave, I'm doing the research Sue suggested and I'm bursting with enthusiasm. I just need to see Sue's comments before I get stuck into pulling it all together. I'm very impressed with the course content and tuition. I've done several courses with other companies, including some that cost more than twice as much as this one, but I learned more in part one of this than in the whole of their course.Linda Adams, Ely - 19/04/2017
