Jill with a student novelist, Maggie, in Tigmi at Marrakesh, teaching Start your Novel for Creative Escapes.
Angela Robertson, the organiser writes of the week Jill spent teaching in Marrakesh: ‘I have to say I was very impressed by how much you packed in and made people work during the lessons, while at the same time allowing them to have lots of time to write. You are also an excellent mentor and really made me think about how important that is to the course. You made everyone feel relaxed and comfortable enough to share their work, and very much inspired to continue. You are the perfect tutor for this kind of retreat – professional, nurturing and great fun to hang out with…. I really thought you were fantastic and I know everyone else agreed.’
And Rosie Nixon, participant, said simply: ‘Jill, you are awesome!’
