What Students Say…

“Kerry Ryan’s Write Like a Grrrl workshops were perfectly pitched, informative, inclusive, and empowering. Kerry creates a non-threatening space to explore our ideas and produce valuable work in class. Her teaching style is informal and supportive – exactly what we need.”

“I really enjoyed Kerry’s writing workshops. She created a conducive atmosphere for writing, making it friendly and collaborative.  It was also a good mixture of practical exercises and useful advice. I would definitely attend a course run by Kerry again.”

“The course was fantastic. Without Kerry’s great lesson on ‘How to start writing and keep going’ I would not be writing at all, but I have now managed to do so regularly for the last year.”

“Kerry was an incredible tutor! She was supportive, encouraging and fun. I loved the fact that everything was up for discussion and she never talked down to us. She created a really friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The course was also so well structured, really easy to follow and never felt daunting or difficult. She was just brilliant!”
