“I loved the holistic approach of the Story and Self course. They taught me not only the fundamentals of storytelling, but how they work together and how to recognise the unique ideas and stories that can only come from you. I feel it has helped me to build upon my knowledge and skill as a fiction writer and given me inspiration to write the stories I’m truly passionate about.”
