‘Thank you so much Jacqueline for you hard work and dedication to the course which you have made so stimulating and interesting and everyone for your support of my poems and positive feedback. You are all such a great bunch of people. The whole atmosphere of this course has given me the courage to push my ramshackle old boat out into deeper waters and experiment with new styles instead of freezing in front of blank paper which has been my way in previous classes when trying to write in class. Thank you everyone! Can’t wait for next term.’
