Testimonials from workshop participants

I attended two of Lesley’s workshops at the Swanwick writers’ conference. The workshops were very useful in developing my skills in specifically identifying my target market and the use of appropriate language. The workshops were very well planned with a variety of interactive exercises and discussion. Lesley was calm and enthusiastic and kept a very varied group fully involved throughout.
