‘I’m a long-time fan of Kathryn’s courses. She continually encourages her students to move their work in new directions, and provides a quality of scrutiny and feedback I’ve not encountered elsewhere. I enjoy the “set text” dimension of the course, and the value brought to the classes by the special guests.’
