Feedback from Colette’s Surgeries

“The session with Colette was heartening but incisive. I really enjoyed it and yes it was good value and I would recommend her to friends. It is so useful to have her careful reading, response and editorial skill. Thank you!” – Lydia Harris, York

“I found Colette’s surgery enormously helpful on several levels – and isn’t she a lovely person – and would, indeed already have, recommend anyone to sign up to one. For me, as an out-of-towner, it was brilliant to be right in the centre of Newcastle. Very easy to get to. Excellent value for money.” – Pru Kitching, Weardale

“This was the first time I’d had my efforts analysed and appraised by a poet and the experience was both useful and enjoyable. Colette gave me a number of pointers which I hope will help my writing, and yes I’d be happy to recommend it.” – Larry Marsh, Newcastle
