‘I have taken Kathryn Simmonds seminars for two years and have learnt so much from her and from the students in terms of structure – relaxing shape, layout and its effect, more creative approach to subject and more confident to be random in my choice. Most of all I’ve learned how to edit and allow the reader space to respond. I look forward to new challenges.’
