At the half-way mark in my mentoring programme at Didcot Girls’ School (where I am Patron of Writing), I want to share some of the young writers’ highlights so far.
Let’s hear it in their own words:
‘From the one-to-one feedback, I get a professional and honest view’
‘I have really liked having suggestions on what to add/ take away from my poem’
‘You’ve taught me to add more details’
‘It’s expanding my mind on poetry’
‘You’ve taught me to have confidence in my writing and my ability.’
I was humbled, encouraged and delighted by their responses.
Thanks so much for following this project – lots more to follow in the next 10 weeks, including showcasing of the writers’ exciting new work.
