CLAIRE HAMILTON — CREATIVE WRITINGThe pen is mightier than the sword

What students say


Launch of If You Go Down to the Woods at the Forest Bookshop, Coleford, October 2010

"It has been a great opportunity to meet other aspiring authors, to share ideas and to receive constructive feedback. I can view my current writing more objectively and it is helping me to develop and hone my skills for future work."
Sara Ford

"The class is enjoyable and interesting. I like the way Claire encourages us to overcome our shortcomings and gently coaxes us into writing properly and more readably. She also tells us what the potential reader wants and doesn’t want."
Guy Williams

"Inspired me to write, first of all short stories, and now a novel."
Pat Reynolds

"The classes are stimulating and inspiring and give you the confidence to have a go. Claire can give you plenty of advice about getting published but the emphasis is on writing for sheer enjoyment and personal satisfaction. Reading something out which came from within you is pretty daunting to start with but the other students are always sensitive and supportive when giving feedback. Attending a class like this will motivate you to write, not just think about it!"
Julia Storrar
