What our students are saying

“Masterclass is an exceptional course which has seen me writing seriously again. Regular deadlines, top-quality teaching and peer critique provided a doorway back into the discipline of writing fiction with passion and a sense of taking risks.

Tutor feedback was outstanding: incisive and well-considered with that very rarely found sentence-level analysis, which opened up my story’s potential, and really pushed the writing on.”

Rachael Smart

“Made us all strive to do better as we attempted Tom Vowler’s challenges to think more, welcome others’ opinions, to look up the word ‘obliquity’ and make use of our new understanding. And don’t expect the course to take only 2-3 hours a week. It’s worth a lot more.”
