Take a look below at some of the testimonials and comments that we have received from people who have been a part of a Write It Down! workshop or holiday. The positive feedback we receive is the most important part of our job, and the reason that we want to keep on getting better and better!

The best holiday I’ve ever been on alone!
— Lorraine
I would recommend these classes to anyone.
— Dannie
I’ve been on many creative writing courses, and this was the best.
— Christine
I loved being part of a group who gained pleasure from the process of writing without pretension. The retreat builds confidence and enjoyment. A fun, challenging experience, full of encouragement.
— Caroline
Good variety of cerebral and physical, humour and serious. Really thought-provoking and fun exercises.
— Linda
As a person, Elaine is just such a delight to walk through the week with...boy we found great times in our steps!
— Ashley
I see it almost more as therapy than a ‘learning how to write’ class - it always chills me out as well. I really enjoy Elaine’s company.
— Jo
Without a shadow of a doubt, meeting you and joining your writing salon has been a brilliant, bright highlight of 2013. Great evenings, fine conversation, generous, warm, insightful and compassionate instruction from you. Thank you for your spirit, time, energy, intellect and heart.
— Annie
Thank you Elaine for your wonderful classes – they have been the most lovely, unexpected part of my maternity leave. If I could only afford one class a week, it would be this. It has been the best thing I have done with my baby for myself. It has been such a cathartic experience and now I have an amazing record of the first year of motherhood as well as a fantastic outlet for any frustration I might have. It has been a fantastic experience for me and I’ve made some really good friends in the class as well.
— Emma
Since I moved to London, your salon has been one of the few brilliant things that has made the move easy and so much fun. There are also elements of therapy and learning to your salons and I’m really enjoying both. Thanks for your brilliant hospitality and expertise, the way you run the classes is really great.
— Jon
I’ve been going to Elaine’s classes for six months and every session is wonderful; funny, therapeutic, inspiring and lots more besides. Elaine creates a lovely, warm, welcoming atmosphere.
— Kath
Thanks for another great session, you create such a nice writing environment, with brilliant exercises and I don’t think that’s as easy as you make it look – I love coming.
— Emma
Elaine, thank you so much. It was wonderful! My brain feels fully awake, it’s lovely. Your class is the highlight of my week.
— Alanna
I am addicted to this class – it has been the highlight of my week and my maternity leave. A perfect mix of creative exercises and therapy.
— Jess
Just want to say a big thank you to Elaine for hosting these classes. They have been unexpectedly funny, addictive and inspiring; I think we’ve all forged stronger friendships and understandings of each other and ourselves.
