My pleasure, Claire. You have a fantastic line up of classes there. If only I still lived in the 'Smoke :(
Any plans for weekend classes (masterclasses) for people like me who write full time but still love to go to a good classs and meet like-minded people? I asked the IWC to run some but so far it hasn't happened.

Re: masterclasses, it's not something we've had a huge demand for - I think possibly because high-profile writers speaking at festivals etc seems to fill that need for many people? - but would certainly be open to the possibility. Feel free to drop me a line at clairehennessy@gmail.com if you've any specific ideas about what you'd like to get out of a course like that, though. :)

Thanks Claire. I just like being in a group with other advanced writers, hearing how the facilitator does it, whowhat influences them, getting a few on-the-spot writing exercises, that kind of thing.

Certainly something for us to be looking into, anyway. :) Will be in touch if we've anything along those lines going ahead in the future.
