What other students are saying...

The course was really useful and informative - we could all see that you had made great efforts to structure it in the most beneficial way possible. It exposed me to formats of writing and career options that I had little knowledge about before, and instilled confidence in me to consider this as a serious career pursuit. I'm sure it must have encouraged other members of the class in similar ways. Having Tanya as a mentor was an amazing experience - her passion for good writing and enthusiasm made the course all the more engaging and fruitful.
