Here are the words of some of the wonderful writers I’ve been privileged to meet on my courses!

Enjoy the work of Lynn, Victoria, Lyndsey and their fellow writers on the Student Showcase page!

Lynn R.S.Genevieve

“I have just enjoyed a five week course with Sandra Ireland – ‘Finding Inspiration through Folklore’, and it did exactly what it says on the tin ; I found inspiration in the material presented and discussed, but not only in my writing as I’d planned, but in other creative areas.  With five lessons complete with slide show presentations, accompanying notes and a weekly live online Zoom meeting, where Sandra and our small group were able to interact and share ideas and information to fuel our imagination, I was spurred to complete sewing and craft projects as well as life writing pieces and short stories.  Sandra gave excellent feedback to enable me to develop my ideas further.  I certainly would recommend Sandra’s courses with her gentle and encouraging style.  Lots of fun and met some wonderful like minded creators and writers.”

“Sandra’s Folklore course is a wonderful way to take your mind of the daily pressures of everyday life. Delving into fantastical stories and exploring the mythical legends and creatures that fascinate and excite us, is a super way to connect with our landscape and Scottish heritage. Aside from being interesting and educational, learning about local Folklore is simply great fun!”

Lyndsey Croal

“Sandra’s course was really engaging and had the perfect balance of course content and discussion. It was a small and friendly group and I learned lots about Scottish folklore, particularly how to employ ideas in storytelling. I came away with a few snippets of stories and would definitely attend another one.”

Let’s write together.
