Give a voucher for a writing course or workshop to the writer in your life, wrapped appropriately for a Christmas, birthday, or anniversary present.

The voucher can be for any amount or for a full writing course or workshop. You can select a course for them or let them choose, plus all the vouchers are transferable if they prefer another course.

All Christmas vouchers come gift-wrapped (if you wish), with a flyer listing the courses available, a batch of Story Circles postcards to play with, and rhyming-cheatsheet bookmarks.
