Back in 2014 Hanef Kureshi caused a bit of a stir when he cast doubt on the value of creative writing courses.
Here at Writing Matters Towers, we think our ‘bums on seats’ – and more so, our ‘repeat custom bums on seats’ – speaks for itself about the quality of our teaching. We believe that properly prepared lessons, accessible teaching methods and happy confident students make for a thorough and useful course. Our teaching is peer-reviewed by our partner organisations at least once a term within our own quality assurance framework.
Most of our new custom comes from word-of-mouth referrals which is always great to hear.
This article is an interesting reply to Kureshi’s original statement.
