I cannot tell you how much it means to receive a lovely testimonial, it really warms my heart and makes all the hard work totally worthwhile. It is so rewarding!

The lovely Fidela was a worthy winner on my #tellusastory competition. She lives in Indonesia and was delighted to receive her prize. It was an honour to have a contestant from so far away!


This lovely creative writing workshop for Waterstones in Ashford made the local news!

..... it’s a pleasure to be part of such a fun and supportive group with an inspiring teacher like you Karen. I’m sure if my son had had an English teacher with half your enthusiasm he’d have loved English lessons!!

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 and hope that next time we can invite you to join us in person. Thanks again, the poem the group were able to produce with your guidance was fab!
The session was done via zoom due to COVID.

My eldest daughter first attended one of Karen’s creative writing workshops a number of years ago after always struggling in terms of her writing and after a few fun sessions in which my daughter could see that writing doesn’t always have to be so mundane, her total opinion was transformed from a negative into a positive - I cannot thank Karen enough for that!
Since then my daughter has taken part in a number of Karen’s online challenges and was lucky enough to win one during the March-August lockdown. Again something that really helped build her confidence 😊
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Karen!!

My daughter had a bit of a confidence crisis in year 3 after being laughed at when reading out loud. She stopped engaging with anything to do with stories, either reading or writing them. I signed her up for Karen's WriteSmart club at our local library and she loved it. Every week she was encouraged to use her imagination through mini craft projects and not worry about little things like spelling mistakes. She thrived and looked forward to her weekly sessions. Karen's enthusiastic, relaxed, fun approach was exactly what she needed to coax her back to loving her books once again.
I would thoroughly recommend Karen's WriteSmart sessions; her infectious enthusiasm and unique fun approach is genius, giving children confidence to explore and develop their creative writing skills.
