Here are some things our students and clients have said about our work. Presented here with permission.

Helen makes excellent use of creative resources within her work and her creative writing sessions are always well thought out, stimulating and inspiring. Helen is very approachable and friendly, she is skilled at putting people at ease in new situations and also gently builds confidence in a very productive way. I would highly recommend Helen both as a tutor and as a writer.

Head of Creative Writing, Converge, York St John University

Pulled together complex, detailed and sensitive information into a clear and concise report. Excellent communication and diligent work. Would recommend.

Bob Saynor, Deputy Principle, York College (freelance writing client)

You didn’t just correct things and make suggestions, you held my hand through it all.

Sarah, coaching client

I’ve had writer’s block for years and this course finally broke it. The Writing Tree approach is very non-judgemental and gentle. I learned how to enjoy my writing again.

Kim, Creative Writing Kickstart Course

I really valued being able to submit some work and have feedback. I found it useful to have the form of the course, which offered structure. It is very helpful to know there is a listening ear and it was useful to be able to work towards the conclusion of sending a piece of work in at the end. It has been a great support to have the gentle support of this Writing Tree course in the background while I write my novel.

Rosemary, Creative Writing Kickstart Course

I enjoyed the workshop. The tutor is friendly and approachable and put us all at ease.
