My students say…

‘Katy has proved quite invaluable, helping me tighten and loosen my writing, always sensitive to what can be improved, and helped my poems along the way to being published in magazines.’

‘I have had a great time at your class – not only stimulating discussion and input from you but also it was spot on for my own needs.’

‘Katy creates a truly positive, constructive atmosphere in which aspiring poets can feel confident and supported in their exploration of their own and others’ work.’

‘it was extremely inspirational and you are a fantastic teacher.’

‘Thanks you for the brilliant workshop – very enjoyable, and the slideshow was genius!’

‘Possibly the best workshop I’ve ever been to!’

‘Fun, friendly and informed; she asks the right questions.’

‘Someone who’ll keep a clear head in a poetry crisis.’

‘An inspiring choice of poems for us to study.’

‘I found it really useful to investigate how conventional forms still underpin poems which on the face of it are written in a very free style and how poems which appear conventional often subvert the forms they adopt.’

‘Really awesome!’
