What people say

Here are the thoughts from teachers, parents and pupils about Write Inspired projects, sessions and courses.

'What I loved was the sensory richness of it all. I loved the idea of using plasticine or clay models to create little micro-worlds and to seed stories. I loved the music, the drumming, the guitar playing – I think the rhythmic aspects of language are often slightly neglected and this brought that to the fore. Words are plastic things, squidgy, malleable...it seemed like a wonderfully rich experience...'

They all really liked Phil. They said he was ‘extravagant’ and ‘a really good bloke’. They said it was ‘mind opening’ and they enjoyed the kinaesthetic aspects of the sessions. One boy particularly enjoyed the poetry section. It was difficult for them to give any points for improvement.A particularly nice bit of feedback was that one of the boys has used the idea behind the ‘what can the string be?’ exercise to help him explain and understand new concepts since.
