Meet Ann who is just one of our first-class Creative Writing tutors:
“Creative writing has excited me for as many years as I can remember. I studied creative writing with the Open University. I have had flash fiction and short stories published. I subscribe to many writing magazines and follow a wide range of authors online. I have always been an avid reader and book group member. I attend Cambridge and Hay Literary Festivals every year and in addition to bestselling authors, I listen to debut authors, cover designers and e-publishers who keep me up-to-date with information to support my learners’ development as writers.”
