An excellent way to study at one’s own level and speed with sufficient discipline to ensure progress over the eight weeks. No pressure, plenty of encouragement and advice. Made better by an active group of contributors.

My first writing course, A&J exceeded expectation. Excellent content, efficient delivery, brilliant tuition, and it was cheap. Mardi Sands is a gem. Portability was key. A South African start, English end, a glimpse of Oz & NZ on the way was the bonus cultural lesson.

I’m glad I chose A&J as my first U3A course. It was so good that I registered on Writing for Publication. Having used computers since main frames, the delivery method was ideal. My Adult Education College is just across the road, but with U3A I can learn writing in my garden.

This course addressed my need to find the narrative of my life. Sharing the experience with others going through the same process was helpful on levels I had not anticipated.

I hoped to overcome some of my inhibitions in my writing and I think I did that. In addition the memories that were generated by the suggested topics made me realise what a good life I have had. So many happy times and so few regrets. The course was excellent, and Mardi was a helpful and supportive guide. I learnt a lot about myself.

Very many thanks to Mardi Sands and the group - and to all the people who keep U3A running! I have thoroughly enjoyed the 2 courses I’ve followed recently - and now look forward to the NEXT one. I’ve had a bad year - and you all have helped me get back on my feet!

The daily writing exercises on suggested topics produced a whole lot of writing. The feedback from the tutor and other students was invaluable. Forgotten memories began resurfacing, often prompted by the writing of another student. I now have a much clearer plan in mind for my final publication.

I enjoyed the course so much that I didn’t want it to end. This is the fourth writing course I have done with U3A, and I have enjoyed them all. However, I would have to say that this one is the best. Mardi is a fantastic teacher and her support, together with that of the other students, was wonderful. We were encouraged to explore deep within ourselves through the darker periods of our lives. This resulted in the sharing of a lot of very personal and intimate moments. I now feel quite confident in writing about those personal details. I feel sad to be leaving behind a bunch of dear friends.

The course got me writing, provided me with an audience for my writing, gave me the opportunity to see other people\\'s work and gave me plenty of ideas for future writing. It was unfortunate that participation was down but this appeared to be as a result of outside influences.

Like some other members of this course I had some health issues during the course and wasn\\'t always able to participate as I would have liked but I enjoyed what I did and it was great to have something else to concentrate on when I needed distraction from my health.
