Ivy, I would just like to say how much I enjoyed your workshop …

The exercises that you set were well-prepared and appropriate and fun.

I gained not only ideas to generate more inspiration, but also a bevy of poems to develop. Thank you.

Ivy’s workshop was interesting and thought-provoking.

She created a supportive environment where people felt safe to try things out, and used excellent prompts to get us writing.

It was heaps of fun and I would highly recommend!
