    I enjoyed the learning environment. The timing and pace of the workshops were well structured, keeping everyone involved, alert, and even entertained!”

  • “I learned a lot about the writing styles suited to different age groups; to really pay attention to the characters and scene of the story; and to be aware of how details can make a difference to the reader.

    I look forward to continuing to write, working on my storytelling and trying to engage the imaginations of a young children in words.This is the second Amsterdam Writing Workshop I have attended, and once again I very much enjoyed meeting people who also enjoy writing and getting new ideas about ways of putting stories on paper!”

  • I learnt that I could generate an idea—and even a whole story—in a very short period of time.  I also learnt more about writing for the different age groups—and about unexpected techniques used when writing for children. The workshop provided techniques to help me continue and improve my current project. I love the extensive hand-out, which I can refer back to when revising.”
