If you want to use any of this material contact me and there is a very good chance I will say YES.
However, if you just cut and paste into your own blog or whatever and pass it off as your own then there's a very good chance I will find out. Don't fall into the trap of thinking the internet is so vast and expanding so fast (note the fancy internal rhyme)] that no one will know.
I can promise potential students they will get loads of benefits, I’ve been on two of your courses and they were better than any of the others I have tried. I’ve never been on one for the ‘terrified’ but your exercises are always inspirational, you share time between absolute beginners and more established writers equally, give constructive criticism and even mark one or two assignments.
Although I am already a writer of sorts, non fiction, poetry and a successful play one can always learn something new, change genre etc.
Not least there was your gentle humour, wonderful knowledge of so many authors, writers and markets and it was lovely being with like minded people. Brilliant!
Ann, I don’t what to say…except I think I’ll have your comment printed on a t-shirt!

Writing is definitely healing. I just wonder sometimes how much writing I’ll have to do to come to peace one day. Wish I was near enough to take the class…sounds wonderful. 🙂
It would be so nice to have you too…I think the healing aspect comes from not only releasing pent up feelings that need expression, but also because it is one of the creative arts and being creative nourishes – it meets a basic human need

Very good point about creative non-fiction! And of course writing is the best therapy going – cheap, easy, accessible. Also good way to cure insomnia… or is that just me?
Writing is definitely a recession-proof activity. Writers are cheap – we don’t need much. not sure about curing insomnia though, writing tends to keep me awake…
I’ve got up and written stuff when I can’t sleep and I often find I can get to sleep after that. Like I say, might just be me. Sorry if you’re a fellow sufferer.
I agree when you have ideas chasing each other around in your mind then you can forget sleep, writing is the only answer. No point in fighting it.
