Her teaching style encourages open contributions from students requiring her to engage in responding to random points, often whimsical, raised by participants. Her ability to deal with these professionally, demonstrates both the breadth and depth of her knowledge of the field, encouraging her students to read a wide range of authors for the first time.

 

On a personal level, she has introduced me to writing poetry, a sphere of creative writing I never thought I would attempt, however naively.

Testimonials

Sarah doesn’t judge if you fail far short of literary excellence (where I usually reside) she actually wants to hear your voice. Many times when I’ve written something, I find myself thinking, “Where did that come from?” or “Did I really write that?” And yes the one person who isn’t surprised is Sarah.

She has an unerring gift for drawing out, and helping you to use the spark of creativity which I am often convinced she saw way back at the beginning. [...]

 

If you’d told me a couple of years ago I could write a pantoum and double acrostic, write in iambic pentameter, write scenes for pantomime, travel pieces and short stories, which were well received, I would have politely invited you to locate yourself elsewhere in haste. In case it was in anyway unclear, I can indeed do that and infinitely more thanks to Sarah.
