Surrey Adult Learning

I teach weekly classes and day courses for Surrey Adult Learning at the Guildford, Woking and Esher centres. The classes are suitable for anyone who wants to start writing creatively or for anyone who already writes and who wants to develop their skills. Feedback and encouragement are based on each writer's aims and ambitions.
 
Details of all my weekly and day courses are below.
