What my customers say..

Karen delivered a fantastic creative writing session for our young people. She was fun, engaging, incredibly inspiring and really helped our young people to find the fun in Shakespeare! We would love you to join us again Karen. Thanks again; the poem the group were able to produce with your guidance was fab!
