Testimonials from previous KICKSTART YOUR WRITING workshops:
“Whatever stage you are at in your writing, whatever your fear, whatever your block, something will happen over this weekend. Something good that will move you forward (in the way you expected it to- or not).” – Helena
“The course with Jane and Victoria was a great experience. It was also great to meet Victoria in person. She did an amazing manuscript assessment for my novel, on which I am still working. I am now thinking about plot!” – Jacinta
“Inspiring and informative! The workshop is led by a lovely pair of skilled writers with a real knack for teaching. You will leave with a notebook full of tips and ideas, and the seed for a story or two.” – Mariya L.
