Having run our first Home Education session in The Writers’ Block we were thrilled to receive a really appreciative thank you letter from one of our customers! We thought we would share it.


I just wanted to write to say a big thank you for the fantastic workshop you delivered on Monday.

I have recently had to withdraw my 12 year old son from school due to severe anxiety. I wasn’t sure we would even make it through the door but we did and he came out relieved and inspired – not yet confident enough to go off and write as he once used to, but still it felt like a huge step forward.

The workshop leaders were brilliant – they spotted him struggling and sensitively engaged him in just the right way. It really helped him to enjoy the experience – he went from being close to tears and ready to bolt to coming away with ideas to build upon and hoping he could come again.

I really hope every school in Cornwall can give their children the opportunity to take part in this brilliant project and I am very grateful that the opportunity has been extended out to home educated children too. We are really looking forward to the next one.

With kind regards,
