I have just finished teaching Phase 2 of the course at Newton Abbot Library.
Here are some critical reviews to share:
‘I knew my novel wasn't working but could not see why. Benedict's course has taught me so much and now the book is really flying. Benedict has helped me put the fun back into writing. I have watched my novel transform from a trudging tale into a story I feel proud to have written. Benedict has taught me the craft of writing. I didn't realize how much I could improve.'

‘I joined Benedict Brooks' writing course
to pick up hints of how to improve my writing style. My expectations were exceeded. Each of the sessions contained tuition relevant to my needs. In my case, I hadn't realized how fundamental my needs were: whether developing exposition or imagery; characterization or viewpoint, this course wasn't about providing 'writing hints', it was about providing a thoroughly invigorating challenge to us of how to best develop our craft’
NICK, Wolborough Hill
When I started my first Creative Writing course with Benedict, I thought I was quite a good writer. He soon made me realise that I had a lot to learn but I had the potential to be quite a good writer. He said that no one would improve whilst writing in a vacuum, which I was doing. Two courses later, I am much more confident...my technique has improved, I've learnt "less is more" and it is easier to critique my own work with the tools I have acquired. The whole process has been hard work but fun… thank you Benedict.
