Michelle Smith
I learned so much from the CMP Creative Writing course. There was no pressure, as the study is conducted at your own pace. This meant I could take my time and really digest the lessons before progressing through to the next one. Feedback from my tutor, Julian Brouwer, was always constructive and helpful. Well worth.
Pramod Joshi
The course was very educational and helpful. I learnt a lot about writing well. The content was excellent, thorough and well presented.
