Thankyou Sam for a wonderful experience. Ella has really enjoyed herself this week and we look forward to reading all about Joe and of course Bailey Greens own character Billy Turner. Many thanks again I can’t tell you how much inspiration Ella took from the workshop big writing will never be the same again!!!!

"Sam Osman" Says:

I had a wonderful time at Bailey Green this week and I have to say that Ella was a pleasure to work with. Her input was extremely thoughtful and she is a charming girl. I was bowled over by the children’s imaginations, creativity and ability to concentrate and I am so glad the workshops have inspired Ella to keep writing because that is what it’s all about!

I'd love to hear from you! - Please leave me a comment
