“Forthright and challenging, this was exactly what I wanted from a creative writing course. A million miles from the airy fairy BS I feared.”  NF  – Student

 
A very inspiring and enabling tutor who can support you creatively by exploring the un-thought of corners of your story idea across the various domains of writing, including novel, play, factual and screenwriting” – Carl Schoenfeld, Film producer

 

Prior to the creative writing course that I took with Andrew I had hardly ever written fiction. Andrew is the best possible writing tutor that I could have ended up with because he nurtured the flicker of interest that I had in writing into a fully fledged hobby: since the course in late 2009 I have written 2 full length books in my free time for the sake of writing them. I have maintained a blog and I continue to enjoy exploring the written word and it is all thanks to the skills that he instilled in me.

“Andrew took the mystery out of a mysterious subject. Before he returned it, I examined it through his microscope. That evening, under a full moon, I went home with a song in my heart and a promiscuous pen in my hands.” – Adam Temple

 

“Neil is a great teacher who gets people opening up and feeling very comfortable very quickly and I felt he was very good at getting myself and the others to really dig into writing without any sense of self-consciousness. It was liberating. In the three days of the course, I had nearly all my cobwebs blown away and learnt lots of very useful ideas, approaches and bits of interesting information which are still as fresh in my head as when I heard them. When it came to critiquing our work Neil was quick to praise positive achievements, but also to point out areas of weakness in proportion, always offering useful insight into how one might improve and learn. In short, I can’t praise Neil enough as a teacher and as someone who knows how to separate the nonsense from discussions about writing. He has a very constructive and positive approach as well as plenty of experience and stories to share.” Gideon K

 

“Andrew is one of the most inspiring tutor/person I have ever met, he lectures from his heart, which makes his teaching so real and exciting. He has inspired me to begin to write, to begin to write my own piece of story.” JH – Student (Sweden)
