Creative writing

I participated in this course with Diane a few years ago when it was a year long Diploma through Aoraki. It was very worthwhile. I quit just before the end, due to health reasons and so missed the bit of paper that affirms this but felt very satisfied with all I learned.
Diane packs an encouraging amount of information and inspiration into her teaching.You wont regret enrolling.
p.s Dont blame her for my horrendous punctuation blips. That was Art School and came under the umbrella of creativity( my excuse anyway)
