Course Reviews

The evaluations from your students indicate that many felt they benefitted greatly from your facilitation and encouragement to draw on their own inner resources to spark their writing, and that through this they gained knowledge about themselves and insights that were highly enriching to the writing process. They were given some methodology and tools and felt supported and enabled to be self-reliant in their work. Although this made others used to a more didactic approach insecure at first, they adapted to it and acknowledged its value.

How We Respond To Art

UCT SUMMER SCHOOL
I attended the Life Writing Course with Dawn Garisch in June 2017. As a pensioner on a limited budget I needed to be a sponsored participant and I am forever grateful for this. The Course was an experience for me of deep growth and of healing that continued working positively in my life and definitely in my writing. The Course and Dawn's facilitating leads one in a very sensitive and yet robust way to interior pathways of memory and connection needing to be explored; listening and sharing with other writers gives one the confidence to go in mind and heart where you may not have ventured before. I have recommended this Life Writing Course many times to many people and will continue to do so.

Lost/Found Memoir
REVIEW BY:
ESME GOLDBLATT
I found Dawn Garisch’s memoir-writing course extremely useful and helpful: she provided a structure that held all of us would-be memoirists firmly to our task, while at the same time helping us to get in touch with our senses, our fears, our dreams, our stories. The image that comes to mind is of holding tight to the golden thread that will allow us to go down to the depths and emerge again, unscathed though not unchanged. The sense of community and support that is born of twenty-odd people meeting daily for four days to address themselves to such a deeply individual task was also one of the unexpected pleasures of the experience. I would heartily recommend this course.

I enjoyed all the writing exercises as they showed me I have the potential to be a writer but I LOVED the excerpt readings and the balance of energies between the facilitators the most.

Doing the course opened me to emotions I didn't realise I have and made me look at some parts of my life with a different eye. I’ve made a promise to myself not to stop writing from now on!
