Testimonial:

Folklore, fiction, facts and friendship – I found it all when I took part in Sandra Ireland’s online ‘Finding Inspiration through Folklore’ course. In fact, I discovered it was so much more; there was fun, sharing, camaraderie and all the while I was learning, learning, learning.

The course materials provided were informative, easy to access and the exercises inspired me to move forward with my own research and writing. I am now hooked on looking out for stories of local folklore wherever I go!

Sandra’s calm, gentle teaching manner gave us all the confidence to share our own work. It was lovely to feel part of such a kind and supportive group. I look forward to taking part in future courses run by Sandra and would highly recommend them.

Sareen McLay, who took part in ‘Finding Inspiration Through Folklore.’


“Sandra’s generous, welcoming spirit has me returning to workshops, both in person and online, again and again. Sharing her extensive knowledge on a wide range of writing styles – novel, short story, folklore, poetry – in a calm, encouraging manner, means participants blossom and share too, leading to rich, informative classes. If you are offered the opportunity to learn from Sandra, please grasp it firmly with both hands!”
